Our Philanthropic Mission

We strive to foster learning, communication, and relationships among younger students and future engineers. We enjoy being involved in outreach events each semester, for elementary and middle school children, designed to encourage an interest in science and engineering disciplines through hands-on activities and presentations. Education is important to us, and we aim to promote life-long learning and ignite a passion in the cosmos.

Engineering Tomorrow

Purdue Orbital will be participating in Engineering Tomorrow hosted by the Purdue Engineering Student Council. Open to all students in Kindergarten through 8th grade, Engineering Tomorrow aims to stoke students' interest in STEM fields. Purdue Orbital will be providing presentations and activities in pursuit of encouraging students to take an interest in Outer Space and its exploration. Additional information regarding Engineering Tomorrow can be found through the Purdue Engineering Student Council.

 

It's always exciting to show this generation all the technological advances they have access to here at Purdue!

In small enough groups to be able to see and hear what is going on, we show the kids how cool aeronautics can be, and how they can get involved, too!

Presentations can be boring, but even after 3 sessions, these little rocks stars took in all the awesome information we were giving them! They definitely bright futures ahead of them!

There are billions of places out there that we know nothing about. The fact that we know nothing about them excites me, and I want to go out and find out about them.

And that’s what science is.
