Mission

The ACCESS for Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit foundation, was established in September 2007 by the founders of Microgravity Enterprises, Inc., who’s belief that space should be accessible and affordable to everyone sparked the idea of a non-profit educational program (the ACCESS for Education Program) that involves the tremendous talent and creative spirit in the Nation's schools and universities to help make commercial space a reality.
 

The mission of the ACCESS for Education Foundation is to provide educational and public outreach focused on space research, development and commercialization.

Population(s) Served

The ACCESS for Education Program educational outreach activities are focused on the exciting aspects of space as a method to connect students to science and engineering, helping to address a national need to make science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education interesting, accessible, tangible and retainable.
 

K-12 ACCESS Program presentations are fun, grade-level appropriate, and educational. The presentations include an introduction to rockets and spaceflight; videos of actual payload integration and rocket launches; a discussion about aerospace career opportunities; an up-close view of real spaceflight hardware; and space-related giveaways. Presentations also familiarize the students and educators with the ACCESS Program on-line resources and the K–12 Inspirational payload program.

 

University level presentations focus on cutting edge space research and development. The ACCESS Program adds a new dimension and focus to space research, especially at the university level, by integrating the elements of profitability and business modeling with traditional science and technology development.

Population(s) Served

The ACCESS for Education Program (also called the ACCESS Program) is a national hands-on space experiment flight program that facilitates U.S K-12 and university student teams to design, develop, and fly actual science payloads to space. The ACCESS Program flies two classes of payloads to space - ACCESS Inspirational payloads are for K-12 payloads and ACCESS Research payloads are for U.S. university state-of-the-art research and development payloads. The ACCESS Program allows student teams to participate in the exciting aerospace field at almost no cost, except for the team’s time, energy and enthusiasm. 

 

The ACCESS Program includes two focus areas, each of which is based on the type of space experiment flown:
§         ACCESS Inspirational payloads are designed to allow K-12 student teams to apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) concepts to design, develop, and fly science payloads to space.

§         ACCESS Research payloads are designed for U.S. university state-of-the-art research payload development. The ACCESS Research payloads will add a new dimension and focus to space research by integrating the elements of profitability and business modeling with traditional science and technology development.
