One of the opportunities we are proud to support our stellar students with is helping then to attend various professional conferences and speak about their Higher Orbits experience, their journey in STEM, and their science in space! We are thankful to all the organizations and individuals who help make that possible.

#ThrowbackThursday - Pictured here Abby & Claire spoke at the AIAA Sci-Tech conference earlier this year in San Diego.

We are looking forward to more opportunities like this for our students in 2023 and would love to chat with anyone who would like to help us make that possible! Reach out!

We are #GivingThanks to Collins Aerospace for being a galactically great supporter of Higher Orbits DC Charity Golf Tournament!

Our golfers were truly #SpaceInspired after a full day of hitting the Belmont Country Club Golf Course in support of Higher Orbits STEM students. We had a blast and are galactically grateful for all who were a part of this outing!

Thank you Collins Aerospace for investing in the next generation of STEM and being a part of this stellar event!

Our Greater DC Charity Golf Tournament surely would not have been possible without all of our stellar galactic golfers!

Thank you to all who joined us to enjoy an out of this world day on the green with Astronaut Greg "Box" Johnson and Astronaut Mike Foreman to support students in STEM! Higher Orbits had a blast connecting with each and every golfer and sharing our mission to inspire the next generation. Your support means the universe to us and our students!

On this day in 2018, SpaceX-16 launched to the International Space Station carrying cargo including the winning experiment from the Go For Launch! Durham Series (made possible by @durhamlibraryfoundation & @DurhamCountyLibrary) from Team Orion!

This patch was designed by Orion as part of their #GoForLaunch experience and was made into an actual mission patch for them to have at launch.

At our Greater DC Charity Golf Outing, our golfers enjoyed a day on the beautiful green of the Belmont Country Club Golf Course. Following our outing, Higher Orbits hosted a reception complete with terrestrial treats and an out of this world silent auction!

The silent auction was a fun way to get all our supporters involved in more friendly competition to support Higher Orbits students. This auction of course would not have been possible without the incredible support of our auction supporters who donated many of these stellar items. From artwork and drink ware to custom Higher Orbits pieces and Astronaut led museum tours, there was an item for everyone to get excited about!

Thank you for being a part of our outing and helping us on our mission to support the next generation of STEM and STEAM!
