MONROE - Barb Sathoff, Monroe, attended the Inter-generational Adventures in Flight Road Scholar Program from June 23 to 28 at the Kansas Cosmosphere and Space Center.

The five-day program is for adults and their children or grandchildren to learn about space science and aviation. During camp they take a flight lesson aboard a Cessna 172 with a certified flight instructor, train in the Cosmosphere's spaceflight simulators, build robots and rockets, and explore modern aircraft manufacturing on a tour of an aircraft facility in Wichita.

Participants tour the Cosmosphere's world renowned Hall of Space museum featuring the largest collection of Soviet space artifacts outside of Russia, experience thrilling films in the Carey Dome Theater, and see the stars in the Justice Planetarium. The program concludes with intergenerational teams flying a space shuttle mission on the Cosmosphere's Falcon shuttle simulator, the most realistic outside of NASA.
