Bill Nye the Science Guy
Intergalactic Education President Justin Park continued networking with the space industry despite global social distancing challenges. President Park participated virtually in this year’s Planetfest 2021, which was hosted by The Planetary Society’s mechanical engineer and well-known scientist Bill Nye! The Planetary Society's mission is to "empower the world's citizens to advance space science and exploration," which puts it in good company with Intergalactic Education.
Space Exploration Educators Conference
President Park also attended this year's virtual SEEC. Educators from across the world joined for inspiring keynote presentations, interactive sessions, and engaging virtual tours at the 27th annual SEEC.
Million Girls Moonshot!
It is imperative that girls feel empowered and encouraged to pursue STEM prospects. If we want them to succeed in their efforts, they must be provided experiences and tools that will help them excel in today’s world. Intergalactic Education believes in the vital need for girls to have these opportunities and we are proud to support the Maryland I Am STEM Alliance and Million Girls Moonshot!
Everyone is celebrating the landing of the NASA Perseverance Rover and Ingenuity Martian helicopter! We even got to hear the wind first hand on the billowy planes of Mars. So when can we colonize? This question and many more point to an exciting future for humanity on Mars. What do you think will happen? Stay tuned for more exciting updates from Intergalactic Education! In the meantime visit our web site and various social media sites for additional information.
Intergalactic Education looks forward to what the new year will bring. We are at the interstellar crossroads where student education meets space exploration!
