AdvancingX, a global leader in astronaut training, collaborative team building, human behavior and STEM programs, has signed a collaborative agreement with the International Space Station U.S. National Laboratory (ISS National Lab) to work together to develop outreach and educational projects and activities intended to engage and excite the next generation of researchers and explorers through the orbiting laboratory.
The ISS National Lab has established Space Station Explorers (SSE) as a community and multi-partner program to promote educational engagements with a broad array of scientific experiments. Members develop and deliver high-quality educational programs that feature STEM concepts and skills including the opportunity for students to design, build, launch and operate their own experiments on the ISS.
AdvancingX has established free access to STEM-X Education programs aimed at engaging students leveraging industry-based content and transforming it into engaging student-led projects. The program is designed to connect science projects to career goals in space. The STEM-X Education curriculum supports both K-12 and university programs. It is designed to stimulate international and cross-cultural innovation, teaching students to use collaborative intelligence to solve problems, develop technologies, improve current practices, and generate new avenues geared at economic and social progress. Students have the opportunity to learn and grow in an environment that embraces their talents and interests while also challenging them to improve and refine areas of creativity by learning from one another. The program also emphasizes the importance of philanthropy, challenging students to share their experiences, inventions, and discoveries with the greater community. Overall, the program will increase students’ perspectives, leading to large-scale impact on not only the space community, but our world as a whole.
