Hey guys, I just wanted to let you know about a great service project/non-profit organization I am doing some work for. It is a national Space Exploration initiative called WeWantOurFuture. It is geared mostly towards Elementary & Middle school students, but could be something easy for Troop 92 to do!

The project is simple; Instructions, an inspirational video, and a letter from a former astronaut are provided, and the group creates postcards depicting what he or she dreams about the future of space exploration (playing tag on the moon, eating ice cream on Neptune, anything!).

The goal of the project is to inspire students across the country to dream about their future and recognize the importance of science, technology, engineering and math in making these dreams a reality. Also, we hope to collect 100,000 postcards from students in every state. As a whole, the postcards will represent a message from youth across the country that they want a future with robust space exploration.

Want more info? Check out the project at http://wewantourfuture.org/

Also, FYI, completing this project can help complete some requirements on the Space Exploration Merit Badge!
