Students To Launch (S2L) is a national science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education initiative that engages underserved, underrepresented students in the challenges, inspiration, and opportunities of spaceflight. This S2L program aims to inspire students to develop a deeper understanding of spaceflight missions and discover passions that can lead to the possibility of a career in aerospace and astronautics. Join the Edgerton Explorit Center Staff for a fun day of hands-on, role-playing challenges to complete NASA-inspired missions together in small teams under the guidance of the program leaders, called Mission Directors. Those students that take part will get a chance to participate in a live launch watch party with an opportunity to meet astronauts and other subject matter experts who work in the aerospace industry. Students that successfully complete the S2L Hub activities are eligible to be selected to attend a multi-day in-person experience at the Kennedy Space Center and the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex in Florida. This all-expenses-paid trip (including all travel, meals, lodging, and programming) gives students the chance to participate in space-related education activities, tours of KSC and KSCVC, meetings with astronauts and other SMEs and, hopefully, the chance to witness a rocket launch in person from special viewing areas at the Kennedy Space Center. Application and interview required.
