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.
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.
Spirit: a martian story
ShareSpace Education, the K-12 education arm of the Aldrin Family Foundation, is proud to have contributed to the creation of Spirit: A Martian Story by Stimson Snead. Follow the journey of a hardworking space robot named Spirit, who was constructed and sent to Mars on a 90 day mission to research and conduct experiments on the desolate red planet!
