Higher Orbits

Goal: $10,000.00

Specific Need

Higher Orbits wants to bring Go For Launch! to Loudoun County in 2018. Go For Launch! is a multi-day event where students (in grades 8-12) get to work with an Astronaut and compete to have their experiment flown to the International Space Station. During this space inspired STEM event the students will work with an Astronaut (for the entire event) as well as other space & STEM professionals. The event is designed to appeal to a student of any STEM ranging from no background to a STEM aficionado! We'd like this event to be funded such that no student has to pay to attend! www.GoForLaunch.space

What would your donation directly support?

$10 would fund the Sharpies needed for Astronaut signatures for the students

$25 funds the supplies for the students to create their team mission patches

$40 funds one team award of SPACE SWAG! for the event (we will need 8)

$50 funds our printed Astronaut pictures

$100 funds the creation of the Go For Launch! Loudoun County mission patch design

$175 funds the physical Mission Patch created for the students to take home

$100 funds our morning or afternoon snacks (we do both each day)

$200 funds a full scholarship for a student to attend (we hope to have 50!)

$400 funds lunch for the participants for one day of the event


Every $1 helps inspire students. Space Inspires!



Higher Orbits is a non-profit with the mission of promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) while developing Teamwork, Leadership, and Communication skills through the use of spaceflight. Mankind's journey into space serves as an ideal launchpad to excite students of all ages about STEM & STEAM and working to fullfill their dreams and ambitions.
