Our program includes hands-on, project based mentorships and partnerships with schools to provide an innovative after school program where students learn about space and aerospace engineering, design and build actual space hardware, and participate in flying an actual space mission.
While the hands-on after school activities require groups of 30 or less, we will also reach a larger population of students by providing a guest speaker "TEE Talks” (Technology, Entertainment, Education) where compelling role models from entertainment and science communities talk to the students about their background and how their education made it possible for them to have an exciting and rewarding career.
In a typical school we expect a 100% increase in the number of students interested in pursuing STEM careers through our 30 student after school class, a 300 student speaker series, and 1,000 plus students via video recording and distribution of the speaker sessions. We have already seen immediate results that support this expectation.
What makes us different from other STEM programs?
An after school project to design, build, test, and launch a functional space mission. Students love and never forget hands-on activities, competing in small groups, and launching into space.
Merging of the science and entertainment communities by featuring speakers that will inspire the students by the types of careers that can be obtained through higher education.
Recording and distribution of a bilingual guest speaker series through our media partners and documentary filming of the space project. We are able to reach far more students across the U.S. than the typical STEM Program. Each of our school programs can reach more than 1,000 students at a cost of less than $10 per student.
Through our relationships with universities, community colleges, internships, and scholarship funds we can help the students transfer their new interest in STEM into a post high school learning environment.
