The scholarship is open to students in 4th through 12th grade.  Applicants may apply to one of four categories: Financial Need/Disadvantaged, Special Needs, Academic Achievement, or Leadership.  The scholarship covers tuition with room and board for any week long camp in Huntsville, Alabama. 

More than 600,000 students and adults have attended space camps since the program began in June, 1982.  Attending camp is a great way for students to start or support an interest in math and science.  If you know a 4th-12th grader who loves science, pass this on!!  Applications must be submitted by Dec 12, 2013.

Send Free Money to One Giant Leap Foundation

Amazon will make up to a 10% donation of the purchase cost on things like books and electronics to the One Giant Leap Foundation  – all you have to do is link to Amazon from the Foundation’s website and shop as usual!  This works through the Amazon Affiliates Program for nonprofits.  Dr. David Livingston, the host of The Space Show, founded One Giant Leap Foundation to educate the general public, including children, on all space topics.  The foundation supports space education with a global approach towards creating a space culture and economy. 

Through Amazon’s program it is so easy to send One Giant Leap free money which will further the Foundation’s progress and ability to educate society about space. 

Save this link and pass it on!

Support Commercial Space, Tour New Mexico’s Spaceport America

Over a three-hour tour you’ll hear stories of New Mexico’s past and learn how the state is a great place for commercial space access.  The tour includes a visit to the vertical launch area to see the existing facilities and those in work.  A bus tour is the only public access to the world’s first purpose-built commercial spaceport while under construction.  When Lady Gaga performs from space in 2015 from a Spaceport America launch why not be able to say you’ve been there!

Free Space Publication

I just discovered that RocketSTEM publishes a free digital publication covering tech and science while promoting the benefits of space exploration.  The current edition features an article on Tito’s Inspiration Mars plan to slingshot two people around Mars with an aggressive 2018 launch date to take advantage of a rare window where the planets align (see page 28-29).  Turn the page to read about the Mars One approach to colonizing Mars by creating a reality TV show around sending people to the planet with a one way ticket.
