Launch: A STEAM Exploration Series,” a new interactive learning
series scheduled to launch in September.

episodes and open-ended prompts grouped into three learning themes
aligned with the mission: Getting to Space, Testing and Transport and
Working in Space.”
The lessons combine digital lessons with interactivity and hands-on

prompts encourage student creativity and engagement through hands-on
learning, while offering flexibility for teachers,” according to
