The Space Foundation

The Space Foundation is a global, nonprofit organization and the foremost advocate for all sectors of the space industry. Founded in 1983, the Space Foundation is a leader in space awareness activities, educational programs that bring space into the classroom, and major industry events, including the National Space Symposium, all in support of its mission "to advance space-related endeavors to inspire, enable and propel humanity.” The Space Foundation publishes The Space Report: The Authoritative Guide to Global Space Activity and provides three indices that track daily performance of the space industry. Through its Space Certification and Space Technology Hall of Fame® programs, the Space Foundation recognizes space-based technologies and innovations that have been adapted to improve life on Earth. Headquartered in Colorado Springs, the Space Foundation conducts research and analysis and government affairs activities from its Washington, D.C., office and has field representatives in Houston, Texas, and Cape Canaveral, Fla.

The Space Foundation supports teachers and PreK-20 students with a comprehensive experiential, cross-curricular, standards-based curriculum that integrates science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) into all content areas. Toward that end, the Space Foundation is co-hosting "The Space Exploration Seminar" in cooperation with Colorado State University (CSU) - Pueblo and its Office of Student Activities, with support from the College of Engineering and the College of Math and Science. Following the coursework segment of the seminar, an evening presentation will kick off with a dinner for students residing on the science, technology, engineering and math floor of the Greenhorn Residence Hall. Then, students will have an opportunity to meet former NASA astronaut Ronald M. Sega, Ph.D., and ask questions about his experiences in space.
