Welcome, Cosmic Girls!

So you want to become a space industry leader?

Cosmic Girls is attempting to cultivate a group of extraordinary girls that will guide the future of space exploration. The Limitless Space Institute can help you on this path. We have a proven history of supporting the research that will push space exploration forward and our background in education helps us translate this research into lessons for students like you. Come learn directly from our Executive Director, Kaci Heins, about the future that you can help build!

What can you expect from the Limitless Space Institute?

Current State of Space Exploration: Learn about what we are capable of in space right now and how close we are to reaching our short-term space exploration goals.
The Future of Space Exploration: Understand the work that needs to be done to take us from where we are now to being an interstellar species.
Your Place in Space: Decide how you would like to be involved in the space industry and learn what it takes to become the leader that you are meant to be.

How can you get involved?

The Limitless Space Institute will be offering three virtual sessions that can help you on your journey to becoming a leader in the space industry. Feel free to join us for one or all of them!

September 10, 2024, at 6pm ET – Living and Working in Space
October 15, 2024, at 6pm ET – Interstellar Travel
November 2, 2024, at 6pm ET – TBA

It is our goal to inspire and educate the next generation to travel beyond our solar system and support the research and development of enabling technologies. The mission of the Limitless Educator Program is to inspire innovative educators to teach beyond the general curriculum. Limitless Educators engage in unique virtual guest speaker opportunities from scientists conducting research in the realm of advanced power and propulsion systems. We also offer our educators the opportunity to attend the Limitless Space Educator Institute, which immerses participants in extraordinary professional development experiences and gives these rock star teachers the time to work together to design new and innovative lesson plans tied to interstellar exploration.  We are thrilled with the cohort of Limitless educators from around the world who have integrity, an out-of-this-world imagination, and the courage to try new things in the classroom!

Meet the 2023 class of Limitless Educators!

The Limitless Education Lab Booster is designed to help Educators and educational organizations, both in the United States and internationally, acquire additional resources to support student learning in STEM. Educators that are recipients of a Lab Booster grant clearly communicate their pursuit of innovative methods that will inspire and educate the next generation of explorers. The Limitless Space Institute will designate Stage I Lab Booster awards that can range from $500 to $5000 depending on the need and scope of the proposal. 

Lab Booster Checklist

  • Must submit a completed Lab Booster Application via the button below
  • Must download a budget workbook file via the “Budget” button below
  • The budget file must be filled in completely and signed off by an administrator

The budget file must then be emailed to kaci@limitlessspace.org

Congratulations to our 2022 Limitless Lab Booster recipients!

Innovative STEM lesson plans tied to space exploration are important because they foster curiosity and creativity in learners while also providing them with opportunities to develop critical thinking, problem-solving, and technical skills. These lesson plans encourage students to explore different aspects of advanced power and propulsion systems for interstellar space travel through hands-on learning experiences and real-world applications.

By teaching students about space exploration, educators can also help them understand the wider implications of science and engineering, such as sustainability, global cooperation, and innovation. Ultimately, innovative STEM lesson plans tied to space exploration can inspire and prepare the next generation of scientists and explorers, allowing them to contribute to the development of new technologies and breakthroughs in our understanding of the universe.

All our Limitless Lessons are designed for teachers by teachers. Each lesson plan includes a powerpoint presentation for the activity, a detailed description for teacher background information, a student packet, and alignment to NGSS standards. Teachers are encouraged to edit the slides and lessons as they see fit to meet the needs of their students. It is our intent to grow our library of interstellar offerings as the program grows so we are open to suggestions for lesson topics and feedback to make the lessons better after you have implemented them with students.

Have fun exploring!
