About Us

Welcome to the coolest idea since humans flew in space!

The Federation of Galaxy Explorers (FoGE) seeks to inspire and educate kids through the adventure of space. Using fun and educational materials and field trips, FoGE exposes kids to space-related sciences and engineering while encouraging teamwork, creativity, and a continued love of learning.

The program is centered around Mission Teams, which meet monthly and participate in occasional field trips. is incorporated in the state of Maryland as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.

FoGE was launched with a pilot program in conjunction with the Rock Creek International School in Washington, DC, and Prince William County school district in Virginia. Our first summer camp was held in July 2002. Our first training program for parent volunteers was supported by the NASA Globe program and was held in July 2002. Additional training has been conducted throughout 2003.

The Federation of Galaxy Explorers Mission Teams will be forming throughout the country starting in 2002. We have discussions ongoing with school districts and organizations in PA, FL, NM, CA, and MD. Please feel free to suggest additional locations to begin programs.

Galaxy Explorers has established collaborative working relationships with numerous organizations and businesses. Expanding collaborative relationships and developing a volunteering base are ongoing actions.
