Thank you to Northrop Grumman, BRPH, and Holland & Hart for making the Tallahassee event possible.


"I'm really excited to participate in the Go For Launch! events. Personally, I can't think of a better way to show students the power of a STEM-based education than to expose them to the amazing accomplishments in the realm of space exploration and let them work with people who have been a part of our nation's space program."

Wendy Lawrence// Astronaut


"Go For Launch! is unlike any other program we have supported in the past. It provides our local aspiring engineers with the introduction to STEM they desperately want and the industry desperately needs."  Art Mallett
