Our friends at BoxLight provided robots within our Giant Mars and Moon Map packages. Our partnership also allows us to reach an extensive database of K-12 schools throughout the U.S.

 

The team at AstroReality adds augmented reality technology to our Giant Mars and Moon Maps, putting the Universe in the palms of our students’ hands.

 

Northrop Grumman was the title sponsor of the Aldrin Family Foundation Apollo 50th Gala.

 

Four of the Challenger Learning Centers across the U.S. are utilizing three Giant Mars Maps™ and one Giant Moon Map™ interactive education packages.

University Instructors, Inc. (a Public Consulting Group Company) And the Aldrin Family Foundation are working together on a collaborative effort to further the goals and objectives of AFF and engage and inspire students and encourage their participation and involvement in STEM robotics and STEM- related careers, with a special emphasis to reaching under-served urban communities.

 

 

JASON is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides curriculum and learning experiences in STEM for K-12 students, and high-quality professional development for teachers. This partnership is designed to enhance the educator experience both in-person and online. JASON connects AFF with thousands of schools across the country through the integration of the our Giant Mars/Moon Maps into JASON’s curriculum.

The Aldrin Family Foundation (AFF) and ASTA Group, LLC (ASTA) operate STARBASE Academy at Patrick Air Force Base. The Department of Defense initiative is a national educational program targeted primarily to at-risk fifth graders to motivate them to explore STEM as they continue their education. Students participate in 25 hours of challenging, “hands-on, minds-on” curriculum and activities in STEM, aviation and space exploration that meet or exceed national standards. Sponsored by the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs, STARBASE is conducted via academies located at National Guard, Navy, Marine, Air Force Reserve and Air Force bases across the nation.

The STEAM3 Collaborative is a partnership of three organizations—the Aldrin Family Foundation, Wingate University, and Union County Public Schools—committed to the significance of science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math (STEAM) to motivate, educate, nurture, and sustain our next generation of life-long learners, educators, explorers, scientists, engineers, artists, agribusiness professionals, healthcare providers, and technologists. 

This three-way partnership gifted permanent and traveling Giant Mars Maps to schools in Las Vegas, Nevada. We are continuing to grow within the district and plan to be in every school by Spring 2021.
