Space Foundation to Offer On-Demand STEM Content Funded by Lockheed Martin

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.  — The Space Foundation and Lockheed Martin are helping students "Avoid the Summer Slide" by providing on-demand STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) content online starting May 18.

“Learning is lifetime exercise and this summer, we want to do our part to help students sharpen their STEM skills and ready for the future,” said Bryan DeBates, Space Foundation Vice President – Education. “Our goal is to provide teachers and parents support via virtual on-demand content that can be assigned as summer homework or just-for-fun activities.”

Thanks to the support of Lockheed Martin, the Space Foundation will provide a 15 series webinar of space-inspired STEM activities and career pathway discussions geared toward middle and high school students. 

Communities in California, Florida, Alabama, and Colorado are being targeted for this outreach with content specific to workforce development. The program will include efforts to develop students to become lifelong STEM learners, to grow a community's organic workforce, and to strengthen economic development while also inspiring students through virtual hands-on activities and lesson plans.

Additionally, participating students will have the opportunity to listen to stories and the career pathway of a former NASA astronaut during three sessions of the Space Foundation’s Audience With an Astronaut® program.

Webinar access is free, but will require registration and completion of a short survey. Register now at https://tinyurl.com/LM-Webinars
