Florida Space Day Goes Virtual!
This year in consideration of COVID-19 protocols at the State Capitol, the 28th Annual Florida Space Day has been expanded to a virtual week. During the week of February 22–26, 2021, a cross section of Florida’s aerospace community will connect with our State Legislators to discuss the latest developments and importance of the aerospace industry in Florida and request continued support for policies and investments that enable Florida to be a leader in the aerospace industry and compete effectively for business expansion and job growth opportunities. The aerospace industry generates billions of dollars in annual economic impact and employs thousands of high-tech workers throughout Florida. Our virtual Florida Space Day events will offer the opportunity to hear some inspirational messages from Lt. Governor Jeanette Nunez, Astronaut Winston Scott, and others. Check the Florida Space Day website for events and times.
