We are so excited to offer Midland Go For Launch! for a second event during April 2022 (April 11th and 12th). The best experiment selected over the three Go For Launch Events (October, April, and June) will be sent on for competition to be launched into space!
Midland Go For Launch! is provided thanks to a partnership between Midland Development Corporation, Chevron Corporation, and Midland ISD through Higher Orbits. Higher Orbits is a non-profit with the mission of promoting Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM); along with leadership, teamwork, and communication through the use of spaceflight.
Midland Go For Launch! is a multiday program (not overnight) that uses Space Exploration as a platform to launch student involvement in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM), STEAM (Art), teamwork, communication, and leadership.
Applications for Midland Go For Launch! 2022 are being accepted now. School counselors, coaches, scouting leaders, and directors of youth programs are encouraged to have students apply from their organization. For more information on the program, download the brochure and flyer below. Students that attended in October may attend in April IF space is available.
The third and final event for the 2021-2022 school year is scheduled for June 7th and 8th (2022).
