Ad Astra shares a deep commitment to education, especially to that of our youth, and often invites local high schools and middle schools to visit the facilities. For instance, a large group of students from the United Space School visit us every year.
Ad Astra scientists take part in education outreach as often as possible, speaking at schools (Elementary to University level), guiding facility tours, and even performing scientific demonstrations. Our scientists have mentored the Booker T. Washington high school rocket team on an annual basis which included design evaluation, performing critical design review, testing hardware, and attending rocket launches. We have even coordinated several high altitude weather ballon launches to gather design parameter data used in the teams models for designing their rocket.
Furthermore, 32% of Ad Astra’s team is below the age of 30, and the company provides them with strong support in their academic and professional life. Ad Astra has also hosted several internships for outstanding young talents coming from some of the World’s top universities.
