ABOUT US

The Federation of Galaxy Explorers (FOGE) is a non-profit organization that educates and  inspires the next generation of explorers in space-based Science, Technology, Education, and Math (STEM).

Founded in 2001

Purpose

The Federation of Galaxy Explorers educates and inspires youth in space- related science and engineering. They learn the science and technology that is changing their lives.

VISION

                    

The vision of the Galaxy Explorers organization is to expand the frontiers of science and technology to explore and develop space.

MISSION

                      

The mission is to educate, guide, and prepare the next generation to accept the challenge of expanding humankind’s presence in space.

WHAT WE DO

The Federation of Galaxy Explorers is a 501(c)3 non-profit educational organization built on the paradigm of a members' participatory club.

mission teams

                                                      

Local “Mission Teams” meet on a monthly basis, 10 meetings per year. Field trips and summer camps are also conducted. Adult volunteers teach with easy-to-understand and fun-to-do educational material to provide a hands-on understanding of space science, Earth science, engineering, and rocketry.

SPACE CITIZENSHIP

                                                

Summer Camps teach the role of government and citizenship, and the promise of space expressed in art, writing, history, and business.

Mission Team members wear uniform shirts and are rewarded for participation and achievements with ribbons, patches, medals, and certificates. Awards are an integral part of the program providing children self-esteem through achievement and recognition.

Benefits:

EDUCATIONAL

                                                            

Galaxy Explorers prepares children for employment in the 21st century.

 

EXPLORATory

                                                                                                                         

Over time, Galaxy Explorers kids will grow to create a long term citizen activist force in society; shaping the nation’s education policy and furthering the science and engineering required in society.

 

ECONOMIC

                                                  

The concept of Galaxy Explorers is an extremely inexpensive means of educating future generations by drawing on the volunteer spirit of people. The program provides a critical support infrastructure to motivate and educate children outside of the classroom. This infrastructure is particularly important given the lack of classroom resources, science and math teachers, and modern day peer pressure.

The Way Forward

In 2002, Galaxy Explorers pilot programs began at pilot schools in Colorado, Maryland, Washington, D.C. and Virginia, where we conducted a summer space camp for 150 children. In 14 years we hosted 40,000 children in summer camps, after school programs, and special events throughout the nation. To accomplish this expansion, Galaxy Explorers has developed partnerships with government agencies, businesses, school districts, and non-profit organizations.
