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.
BRINGING THE MOON & MARS STRAIGHT TO YOU!
ShareSpace Education, the K-12 arm of the Aldrin Family Foundation, uses its innovative and interactive Giant Mars and Moon Maps™ to cultivate a love for STEAM at an early age. When using these maps kids get to sit, stand, walk, play, and learn together on the Red Planet and the Moon! Targeted at ages 10-14 years, students perform fun projects like building personally designed space ships and habitats, and learning the names of craters and land masses.
COULD SUMMER CAMP GET ANY COOLER?
S-Cubed brings CubeSats into the classroom!
For most people, space has traditionally been about observation – watching impacts and successes of others from afar. But, through AFF’s S-Cubed Program, we’re putting students into the driver’s seat and injecting space directly into the high school classroom. The S-Cubed Program content ties in with multiple areas of study that can be used across a wide range of classes, all while perfectly aligning to state and national standards.
Aldrin Art Space is a new initiative created to celebrate the “A” in STEAM. These unique art pieces provide valuable funding for the Foundation’s educational programs.
