In this elementary school program, students use hands-on activities to learn about our six badge topics.
Students at our partner sites in Portland receive a Badge in a Box that holds all the supplies they need to complete each badge, along with the handouts they follow and access to online instructors to guide them through activities. To see if you qualify for the program, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Everyone can participate virtually! Follow this link (coming soon) to the Badge in a Box page and you’ll find supply lists, pdfs of handouts (and an instructor guide for advanced learning) and the videos of our instructors guiding you through each badge. When students complete badges they receive access to additional programs so they can continue to Explore Aerospace.
