Madison Welcomes Go For Launch!

Share this

Higher Orbits, a nonprofit organization, is hosting the Go For Launch! event to inspire students in grades 8-12 in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). Students have the opportunity to work with an astronaut for multiple days and compete to have their science experiment flown to the International Space Station. The event is made possible with support from Jacobs Space Exploration Group and BRPH. Students are participating in engineering design challenges, ethical discussions, and creating mission patches. Retired NASA Astronaut Wendy Lawrence expresses her envy for the opportunities these students have, as she did not have similar opportunities during her childhood.
