Humankind is ready to return to the Moon and eventually go on to Mars. All we need is a new generation of space leaders, entrepreneurs, and explorers willing to take the leap. Enter the Aldrin Family Foundation.

From a child’s first classroom experience all the way through college, and even as young professionals enter the workforce, we offer STEAM-based educational tools, curriculum, and programs that excite and prepare the next generation to take on space. We create the game-changers of tomorrow – dedicated to making breakthrough discoveries and improving life on Earth.

That’s where the Aldrin Family Foundation makes a difference. As a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization, we specialize in hands-on interaction that takes learning to a whole new level. Our efforts fall into three program sectors.


Dive into this interactive project for students and families.  Our team will guide you through the process of how to build your own Family Lunar Outpost!  Join us for this unique adventure as we launch imagination to the Moon!
