PURCHASE & DONATION DETAILS
We know that times are challenging for many and this is why we have an option where you can support us sending a Higher Orbits Summer of Space Kit to a student in need. You may also donate within this "campaign" and we will use those donations to support making sure students have access to these kits. Kits currently cost more than we are charging to produce and ship and we are working to underwrite as much of this expense as possible to support our students. We are also working with schools and organizations to be sure that these are allocated to students across the United States who otherwise would not be able to participate. Please consider an additional donation with your purchase, or donate a kit!
If you are someone who would like a Space at Home kit but need financial assistance to be able to make this possible, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We love fun mail - anything that comes in the mail that isn't a bill or junk mail, is fun! We want to send you space-inspired fun mail with this Higher Orbits Space At Home - Summer of Space Kit.
A personal note from Michelle Lucas, founder of Higher Orbits --
"Space has inspired me my entire life. I grew up in an area where no one was talking about space or dreaming that big yet. Thanks to a spark ignited in me from watching a space shuttle launch on TV, I decided to reach for the stars. My path took me to a career at NASA's Johnson Space Center where I worked in Mission Control and as a technical instructor for astronauts. It was never lost on me that I was following my dream because space inspired me...that's why I started Higher Orbits. I would have given anything as a kid to have space stuff show up in my mailbox. During the pandemic we've been sending space swag and fun mail to our previous Go For Launch! students through our Space at Home kits and I want to share that space inspiration with students across the country. I hope you'll help us inspire the next generation of STEMists and Explorers!
