Space scouts is a membership driven application (App) created in partnership with BACKSACK International and Ignited Thinkers to inspire and encourage youth to explore the world of space sciences as either a career path and/or as a hobby. Today we are witnessing another revolution, which will change the world and is again characterized by a race to space. This race is expected to culminate in the next fifty years. We will no longer be the inhabitants of the earth, but the inhabitants of the universe and will jump between planets using sophisticated space vehicles. Already these days the new space market is growing at a rate of only ten years to a trillion dollars. We want to ensure that youth globally are included in these amazing space opportunities.
Purpose of Space Scouts:
To raise awareness about the advancement of space science, technologies, applications, and space exploration
To identify the main opportunities in the aerospace sector
To provide a free, digital space where students across the world can immerse themselves in various journeys to learn about the aerospace industry
Each journey on the App will have a series of badges that can be earned, information on free internships/programs offered related to that journey, mentors to connect with (Journey examples: aerospace engineering, space art, space agriculture, astrobiology, aerospace medicine, astrophysics, etc)
Students work to complete all patches in each journey, and ultimately finish all journeys provided on the platform to earn a merit certificate + recognition
It will provide a place for students to safely connect with other students and other aerospace enthusiasts around the world, and will highlight space champions around the world for students to read about and potentially connect with.
Our Goal: To Create ONE MILLION Space Scouts by 2024
