Space for you. Space for all.

Center for Innovation and Education, a division of Space Foundation, is a lifelong learning platform for the global space ecosystem that delivers workforce development and economic opportunity for students, teachers, entrepreneurs and professionals via programs offered digitally worldwide or at Discovery Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.


Space Foundation supports Pre-K through 20 students with standards-based curriculum that uses space principles to integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) in laboratory, classroom and after-school settings.
