The Federation of Galaxy Explorers is a non-profit educational organization that seeks to inspire our youth in science and engineering. The Galaxy Explorers educational program focuses on five primary themes: space science, engineering, earth science, rocketry, and space citizenship. Our lesson plans support the National Science Education Standards and are easily implemented by most schools.

FOGE is hosting summer camps in several locations!
