Go For Launch! To Mars (PA) is an engaging learning series designed to spark student's interest in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) and offer high school age students the opportunity to engage in a transformative 3-day program, where they will develop their own innovative experiments that will compete to be flown to the International Space Station. Throughout the program, students will experience teamwork and leadership by working with an in-person team of experienced astronauts, aerospace scientists, and engineers, hands-on immersion in the wonder of human spaceflight research, and communication growth through design reviews with experts!
