Project Exploration Launches Rockets!

“When you launch in a rocket, you’re not really flying that rocket. “The deeper the journey into inner space, the further the possibilities in outer space.” – this is very important – so you don’t have to carry the return fuel when you go there.” “Rocket science is tough, and rockets have a way of failing.”

Project Exploration values the connection students make to real STEM experiences. Creating opportunities to expose students to STEM mentors and STEM-related environments has been a hallmark of Project Exploration programs. We always seek opportunities where our students can meet STEM professionals and can take trips to labs, nature centers, and corporations. These experiences build our students ability to see the options available to them if they are interested in STEM fields.
