The Earthrise Space Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization that raises awareness about the lack of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for young students. This type of education is fundamental to the types of jobs in the new economy. The Earthrise Space Foundation has sponsored a new series of books entitled “Sagan’s Quest: A Robot’s Journey to the Moon,” which tells the story of a robot named Sagan as he strives to reach for the Moon.
The “Sagan’s Quest” series is intended to inspire readers to learn more about space exploration, technology and robotics, while also generating funds to help the Earthrise Space Foundation prepare students to become scientists. Funds from this series will also help current engineers develop the next generation lunar rover—also named Sagan. Finally, this project will also help the Foundation maintain its current facilities and educational programs.
The Earthrise Space Foundation has conducted numerous outreach programs to almost 500 middle and high school students. Another 80 interns have served with the Foundation, which has provided invaluable work experience in the field of space exploration. The Foundation has also worked with the University of Central Florida to design equipment for spaceflight. In 2013, Congressman Bill Posey awarded the Congressional Rising Star in Technology to the Earthrise Space Foundation.
The first book in the “Sagan’s Quest” series is nearing completion, and the second is also far along in development, but this important project can only be completed if the public is willing to support it financially. In order to secure the necessary funds, the Earthrise Space Foundation has sponsored a campaign on Indiegogo to raise $20,000. In return for your generous contribution, you may receive perks like copies of “Sagan’s Quest,” posters, T-shirts, customized book characters, and promotional space in the series.
