"The Longhorn Project at Johnson Space Center is a one-of-a-kind hands-on educational program created as a joint venture among The Longhorn Project, a 501(c) (3) charitable nonprofit organization, NASA’s Johnson Space Center (JSC), the Houston Livestock and Rodeo™, Clear Creek Independent School District, and the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America.The Longhorn Project, also known as the Center for Agriculture, Science, and Engineering (CASE), is located at NASA's Johnson Space Center on a 53-acre tract of land. This land features a 35-acre pasture for grazing, an 11-acre feedlot, and 7-acre "garden" area which consists of the garden plots, greenhouse, orchards, compost containers, aquaculture ponds, a paved patio with a waterfall and pond that is stocked with small fish and the Western Heritage Pavilion that was built and donated by the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo™.

Today, there is a small trophy steer herd that have made Johnson Space Center their home for the duration of their lives, and a show team of longhorns on loan from members of the Texas Longhorn Breeders Association of America. A selected team of FFA or 4-H students, raise and exhibit the Longhorns at eight to ten state, and national longhorn shows per year, including the Houston Livestock and Rodeo™.

Through this unique program, the show team students can have the opportunity to learn about ranch management, animal husbandry and the rich history of our Texas heritage to promote the preservation and legacy of the cattle native to our state."
