Louisville Science Center


Linking and learning with us provides fascinating content and gets students excited about science!

The Louisville Science Center offers a variety of hour-long Distance Learning programs via the Kentucky TeleLinking Network (KTLN). They are designed to support National Science Standards in science, mathematics and technology. Teacher preparation materials and supplies for hands-on activities are provided for each interactive link.

Space Science

StarStation One
What kind of physical and mental training do astronauts undergo before blastoff? What are the challenges of working and living in space and how do they overcome them? Learn about the International Space Station while training to be an astronaut. Students will have the opportunity to perform hands-on experiments that will help them understand how astronauts live and work in the environment of space.

Distance Learning
Micro-G Biology is best suited for students who have already participated in “Living and Working in Space”, or have already studied about the ISS or space science in class. In this link students will learn about the current research being conducted on the ISS and how the microgravity environment of space affects these experiments. Students will participate in several hands-on activities that emphasize concepts integral to understanding biological research in a microgravity environment.
