Federation of Galaxy Explorers
The Federation of Galaxy Explorers educates and inspires young people in space related science and engineering. The vision of the Galaxy Explorers organization is to expand the frontiers of science and technology to explore and develop space. The mission is to educate, guide, and prepare the next generation to accept the challenge of expanding humankind's presence in space.
The Federation of Galaxy Explorers is a 501(c)3 non profit educational organization built on the paradigm of a members participatory club where children attend monthly meetings and occasional field trips. Mission teams are forming all over the country. Adult volunteers teach Galaxy Explorers with easy to understand educational material and fun-to-do projects. The materials use exercises, projects, and field trips to provide a hands-on understanding of space and earth science, and principles of engineering, rocketry and space citizenship (the role of government, the power of citizens in a democracy, the promise of space expressed in art, writing, history, and business). Members wear uniforms and are rewarded for participation and achievements with ribbons, medals, and certificates.
