The Federation of Galaxy Explorers is incredibly proud of the hard work and dedication within the STEM community: teachers, parents, and industry innovators creatively provide funding and resources to expand the minds of our youth, and encourage space education and innovation. We are honored to pursue these goals alongside the greatest minds of our generation. For almost a decade we’ve held the Galaxy Ball to honor the inspiring leaders and fantastic volunteers of space education. It is with their help we create a scientifically literate population, prepare our youth for the expanding demand in STEM-related careers, and allow children to chase their dreams into the next galaxy.
The Galaxy Ball is our biggest fundraising event of the year: funds raised at the gala enable the continuation of the Galaxy Explorers’ mission for the following school year. Without your support, we would be unable to provide fun, affordable, STEM education to the growing Explorer community. All proceeds support the Federation of Galaxy Explorers’ mission to the community!
Every year the Galaxy Ball hosts rocket scientists, astronauts, defense and government employees; all committed to advancing space education over cosmic cocktails, dinner, and dancing! We also host an exciting Silent Auction and Raffle throughout the night. After dinner, the awards ceremony reminds us how important fostering the interest in excitement in space is, recognizing contributors to the fields of space education and leadership, and recognizes our outstanding Explorers, Mission Team Leaders, and volunteers.
