The aim of the Helping Kids Reach for the Stars program is to give kids the exciting opportunity to build and launch a solid-fuel powered model rocket. This will generate an interest in learning and foster a greater understanding of the challenges faced by scientists in achieving their goals.  We are excited to be affiliated with Vanguard Spacecraft's Steve McGrath - designer of the X-PRIZE Eagle .

Steve was kind enough to allow us to join him at his table at the World Space Expo at Kennedy Space Center-Visitors Complex .  His support has been invaluable.
