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.
