25th year of FFH

Future Flight Hawai‘i is an action-packed, space-themed educational program for students in grades 2-5 designed to catalyze interest in science, technology, and the future. The participants experience a variety of training modules with a mission context. Since 1991, over 9000 student and parent participants have voyaged on journeys of exploration to the Moon, Mars, and our own Blue Planet, Earth. Educators and learners of all ages have returned to Future Flight programs year after year to share the spirit of adventure. In 2015 we celebrate the 25th anniversary of Future Flight Hawai‘i with a special program.

The Future Flight Mission Control team includes professional educators from the Hawai‘i Department of Education and private schools and other educators and scientists. The training modules and other program elements are designed by the staff educators, with contributions from Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium scientists and NASA resources. We welcome you to join us to explore space and new worlds of knowledge.


Future Flight Hawai‘i is a program developed and sponsored by the Hawai‘i Space Grant Consortium, University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa.
