We had a great time with Alison Shores, COO of Girls Can! Crate! Alison taught us about Mary Golda Ross, the first Native American female engineer, and we built a Parachute Transport System for our Eggstronauts!

Thank you to Patty and Mina for a great tour of the Pima Air and Space Museum!

We are sending Native American Girls to Space Camp!
Time in Cosmology is honored to be collaborating with the Pascua Yaqui Tribe in our first mission to send middle-school-aged Pascua Yaqui girls to Space Camp! The first group of Pascua Yaqui girls attended Space Camp in June 2017. Selected Scholarship winners received full camp tuition for three years. We hope to be adding more girls and tribes, for as long as we can fund the Girls Taking Up Space Program.
The girls have the opportunity to do challenging hands on activities, while learning STEM, and get to meet NASA Astronauts!
Space Camp Alumnus and NASA Astronaut, Dorothy Metcalf – Lindenburger, visits Space Camp regularly.
And Astronaut John Herrington, the first Native American in Space:
