UPDATE – This event is being postponed and new dates will be announced as soon as possible. (Please note the December dates are here just as a placeholder so the event does not disappear.)

Please note – extensive COVID safety precautions are in effect for this event. Please see this link for more details –https://bit.ly/HigherOrbitsSafetyHealth

Open to students in grades 9-12. Students must attend both days of the event.

During this challenging time when many students may be missing classes we hope that our Go For Launch! program can provide (once safe to do so) much needed STEM, teamwork, and communication engagement. Should we need to change the dates of a program due to this constantly evolving situation, we will reschedule not cancel. We are committed to supporting all these stellar students.

When you register for this event you will notice that there are multiple payment options. The rack rate for this event is $300 per student. We know that during these challenging times, financially some folks need a bit of assistance. As such, we have created a “Pay What You Can” option where you can select the payment level that you can afford for your student to attend this event. We are committed to supporting your students and this is one way we hope to do so. (Are you a company that would like to help support this? We actually don’t have the proper funding to be able to offer this option and very much could use some sponsor and/or donor support. Please contact us if you’d like to help.)
