Space in the Community

Inspire, Educate, and Empower STEAM Learning in Your Community.


DEVELOP Lifelong STEAM Learners • GROW your Organic Workforce
STRENGTHEN Your Community

Through lasting community partnerships, Space Foundation's Space in the Community program is designed to help your community develop PreK through 12 students who become lifelong STEAM learners, to grow a community's organic workforce, and to strengthen economic development. We do that by inspiring students with hands-on activities, enabling teachers through professional development, and propelling your community through special events.

Select from a Variety of On-site and Virtual Programs

Discover how space can bring your community together and inspire tomorrow's explorers:

  • Audience with an Astronaut™: Students hear from a former NASA astronaut* about what it takes to be an explorer and pursue the stars!
