SALT – The SALT program is an exciting, proprietary program that is currently under development. SALT stands for Strategic thinking, Administration, Leadership and Teamwork. Too many young people today lack skill and understanding in these areas. Schools, businesses and organizations are looking for young people who understand how to lead, how to work as a team, how to plan and execute, and how to problem solve.
But the American Space Museum’s SALT program will use the personalities and lessons from NASA and her contractors to help students understand how the SALT qualities can work in their own lives.
Students will learn such things as:
- How can I solve problems in my own life?
- How can I work together with my classmates to complete a project?
- How can I resolve conflict between myself and another kid?
- Can I really be a leader?
- How does a leader act and what does it mean to lead? (Do I get to boss people around?)
- How can I be a better student in school and a better kid at home?
- What makes me special? (Because, guess what? EVERYONE has talents or knowledge or interests that make them special!)
- Are there people who went to space who are like me? Can I make history too? Can I change the world?
Our SALT curriculum uses funny and inspiring stories from America’s astronauts and space workers to help students understand how to be leaders, how to be followers and how to be themselves! Students learn better when they can relate a lesson to themselves or someone in their own life. The SALT program works to make America’s space heroes familiar and accessible…and it helps the students understand that ordinary people (just like them) can do extraordinary things!

Our estimated costs to implement phase one of SALT are: $10,350.
Help us make a difference in the lives of young people. Help us preserve yesterday’s stories and inspire tomorrow’s explorers and innovators!
