Story Time From Space: Astronauts Are Getting Kids Excited About Science

May 26, 2014



Astronauts onboard the space station are reading books to the children of Earth, and conducting exciting science experiments.

"What you cannot imagine, you cannot do" says Astronaut Alvin Drew.  Story Time From Space is a completely unique, inventive and fun educational program that builds on the fantastic adventure of space flight to encourage families & students to participate in reading and science.

Story Time From Space interweaves two of the basic educational building blocks: reading and science to develop interest and strengthen skills in both literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

On January 9, 2014 the five books were launched to the International Space Station! Yes you read that right - the books are already in orbit, circling over your head every 90 minutes at a speed of some 17,000 miles per hour.  In other words, Story Time From Space is happening and the only question is how widely available can we make this fantastic program.

With your help, we can turn it into one of the most exciting global education & family programs ever created!
