About The Mars Generation

The mission of The Mars Generation is to excite young people and adults about human space exploration and STEM/STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) education and foster an understanding of the importance of these two elements to the future of humankind on Earth.

The goal of the organization is to advance public interest in human space exploration and advocate for NASA’s journey to Mars. The Mars Generation will also serve as a catalyst to identify students with an interest in these areas and nurture their study in STEM education.

The focus of the organization is to build a collaborative network of community outreach efforts, working towards a collective goal of educating and exciting young people and adults about the importance of human space exploration and STEM education. The outreach will focus not only on exciting people about space, but also educating them about the economic advantage of investing in space exploration.

About The Mars Generation Programs

The Future Of Space Outreach Program

This popular, worldwide outreach program is designed to inspire dreaming big, gaining excitement about STEM, and supporting space exploration. Developed in 2013 by Astronaut Abby, the program continues to thrive, serving Abby’s online community of over 400,000 people with ongoing space and STEM news to fuel their own excitement. The Mars Generation will now operate the Future of Space Program to empower space enthusiasts to share their own passion for space and advocate for human space exploration to continue and grow. Abby will continue to speak at schools and keynotes for events, host web chats and write for science, space and mainstream publications as part of the program.
