ORANGE PARK – Higher Orbits is a non-profit with the mission of promoting Science, Technology, Engineering and Math, along with teamwork, leadership and communication through the study of spaceflight.

Humanity’s journey into space is an ideal launchpad to excite students like St. Johns Country Day School eighth grader Celine Torkzad about STEM. Higher Orbits works to help them fulfill their dreams and ambitions while also building valuable life skills.

Go For Launch! is a multi-day program that uses space exploration as a platform to launch student involvement in STEM and STEAM (STEM with Art programs) and promotes teamwork, leadership and communication.

Torkzad joined Nolan Williams and Cove Searle, both of Indiana and Arizona’s Krish Nangia, on the winning team.
