Brinley attended SEEC and many other Space Center Houston educational events for many years. All throughout her illness, she always maintained the same positive outlook and spirit. Brinley was an outstanding educator who touched the lives of everyone who knew her. She had an infectious spirit that drove everyone around her to do their personal best and to strive for greatness. The Cherri Brinley Award was created to celebrate other teachers who have the same drive and inherent spirit which always kept Cherri reaching for the moon.

 NASA Tour Information

 Important! Please read carefully.

Your visit to NASA Johnson Space Center is a special event. You will enter working facilities subject to strict safety and security policies. Always follow the direction of your host escort.

  • It is essential that all members of the group stay together and not venture away from their NASA escort. Wandering into restricted areas constitutes a security violation and could result in the termination of your visit.
  • Your visit will require walking and standing for extended periods and may involve climbing several flights of stairs. Guests should wear comfortable, flat, fully enclosed shoes (no high heels, sandals, flip-flops, slides, mules, Crocs, etc.) during their visit. We also recommend that guests wear slacks (instead of shorts or skirts) as an additional safety precaution.
  • Cameras are welcome in all facilities unless instructed otherwise. However, flash photography or photograph of individuals is not permitted.

Attention all non-U.S. citizens.

If you are not a U.S. citizen, you must fill out a NASA JSC Security Form to attend the NASA tours. The form link is located on the tour description page on the SEEC site.
