It's Official! The Countdown to the CCBN Space Expo has Started!
The CCBN Space Expo is a 5-day Virtual Assembly focusing on physical and applied sciences for preschool, elementary, middle and high school aged youth in Colorado from a STEAM perspective. There's opportunities for everyone to get involved between September 27 - October 1, 2021! Not only is October 1st the official Pupil Count Day, it's also the 63rd anniversary of NASA! Let's have a blast!
This year, our goal is to reach EVERY school-aged child in the state of Colorado, regardless of race, ethnicity, sex, gender, abilities, or socioeconomic background and whether home schooled, experiencing homelessness, incarcerated or justice involved, in a hospital, institution, traditional classroom, or displaced from school. We are passionate about assuring that all children will have an opportunity to see someone who "looks like them" and whom they can identify with. Next year (year 2), the goal is to host the CCBN Space Expo for our nation, and the following year (year 3) on a global scale - and yes, right now, we are already working on all three.
