WHY:         Shoffner’s goal is to return from space with the tools to form a STEAM-based curriculum that connects the classroom to the real world through collaboration, problem solving and creativity. Through the Ax-2 mission, he will work to bring awareness to the new era of space access through research, technology demonstration and educational events aimed at empowering educators and inspiring students to follow their core interests. Shoffner believes this era has opened doors for new careers, and that the interests we maintain in our formative years of 10-14 are likely near the core of who we are as a person.
