Thanks for doing this!

We just recently opened a space-themed indoor play space for kids in Raleigh/Durham, NC.

What are the best ways we can inspire children (and especially girls) to get and stay interested in STEM and space exploration?

Edit: We're focused on kids up to age 10 or so.

Hello fellow NCer! And thanks!

I didn't realize Langley was so close or had a visitor center!

I've come across the NC Space Grant site before but I'll have to take another look. It was kind of unclear if it was intended to help younger kids or just older students.

I'm hoping once we're on the other side of the Covid that we can bring in some speakers.

And we definitely try to make sure that we're both portraying and talking about (and eventually hosting) a diverse group of practitioners.
