As the program sponsor of Go for Launch, several employees from the Space Components Division at Orbital ATK’s San Diego facility took their talents and their children to the space camp at the San Diego Air & Space Museum.

Created and presented by Higher Orbits, a non-profit group, the program uses space exploration as a platform to launch student participation in Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (STEAM) around the country.

A group of about twenty high school age students spent three days in San Diego with astronauts (including former astronaut and Orbital ATK Space Systems Group President Frank Culbertson) to learn about human spaceflight and design their own space experiment. Orbital ATK also provided guest speakers and judges for the team competitions.
