Timing is everything
We take pride in the flexibility of our programs; this includes arranging start
and end times that best suit your needs. Some teachers want to make sure that their
class has ample time to explore our exhibits, while others have tight schedules
that require us to abbreviate stageshows and workshops. We want to work with you
to make sure that SpacePort is delivering exactly the right kind of program for
SpacePort’s location beside the Airport Food Court makes lunchtime easy.
Even if kids have brought their own lunches from home (as is usually the case),
your class is welcome to eat at the Destinations Food Court tables, located right
outside the SpacePort facility.
Advice on Getting the Time and Date You Want
We recommend booking as early as possible, as dates fill up quickly with priority
given to groups that have booked earliest. Especially after holiday break, SpacePort
usually hosts two or more schools per day. Booking your class into SpacePort early
in the year remains the best way to ensure that you get your preferred date and
Special Needs Learners at SpacePort
SpacePort has ample experience in delivering worthwhile programs to special needs
classes. The success of such field trips, of course, depends on open dialogue with
you, the teachers. When we communicate openly about the interests, abilities, and
special needs of your class, we can make your field trip perfect.
Out of Town and Charter Schools at SpacePort
SpacePort loves to host visitors from out of town schools. School groups from as
far away as Gleichen, Leduc, Red Deer, Lloydminster and Edmonton have experienced
our educational programs. Many of these groups have become annual vistors. We were
honoured when a group from Wachik, Saskatchewan drove to Calgary specifically to
visit SpacePort. Our ability to be flexible in our scheduling and adapt our program
to your needs makes these long trips well worthwhile.
