Space Station Explorers for Out-of School Time
Application for 2017-2018 Program Year

Thanks to a partnership between the McAuliffe Center for Integrated Science Learning and the Center for the Advancement of Science in Space (CASIS), a limited number of Space Station Explorer for Out-of-School Time (SSE4OST) programs will be available at no cost to qualifying out-of-school time (OST) organizations. SSE4OST seeks to provide financially disadvantaged middle-to-high school aged youth with engaging STEM education opportunities that would otherwise be difficult for them to access. OST organizations must provide transportation for all participants.

Through this application, interested OST organizations are asked to describe the needs of the youth they serve, as well as the organization’s commitment as an educational partner in the SSE4OST experience. Please provide detailed responses to all questions. If more space is required, use the additional space window provided at the end of this application.

If you have a question about the SSE4OST program, please email Julia Abbott, McAuliffe Center Education Specialist at jabbott2@framingham.edu
