The Voyage program overseen by the National Center for
Earth and Space Science Education (NCESSE) provides a suite of ongoing space science
education experiences for diverse audiences across an entire community.
The experiences are based on the remarkable power of models to provide
an understanding of Earth's place in the Solar System and the Sun's
place among the stars.
These experiences are centered on a replica of the Voyage
one to 10-billion scale model of the Solar System exhibition on the
National Mall in Washington, D.C. NCESSE is making replicas of the
exhibition available for permanent installation in communities
nationally and internationally.

exhibition, they become a Voyage Community and also receive a
Package of Resources that supports:
visitors to the exhibition, grade K-12 teachers, grade K-12 students,
informal educators in museums and science centers, families, and the
A Voyage Community also has the ability to purchase
comprehensive Supplementary Educational Programming
through NCESSE’s Journey through the Universe program.
