Go for Launch

“Go for Launch” has rescheduled its program for students eighth through twelfth grade, May 20-21. 

The nonprofit Higher Orbits and the local organization, Space St. Croix, are collaborating to present this event. Higher Orbits provides opportunities for youth to interact with astronauts and engineers during a multi-day program to design spaceflight experiments. Their proposals are then vetted and a few selected to fly their experiments to space aboard the International Space Station.

The program will be hosted at Hudson High School, 1501 Vine St., in 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day. Cost is $50 per student for the two-day program. Meals and snacks are provided. Register at higherorbits.org/events/go-for-launch-hudson-wi

If you have any questions or are aware of an interested student that may need financial assistance, please feel free to reach out to Christopher Mick with Space St. Croix in Hudson at chris.m@spacestcroix.org.
