The Space Society of Silicon Valley provides a dedicated focus on key areas in space exploration and settlement through our Centers of Excellence:
We also connect subject matter experts with teachers to advance Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics (STEM and STEAM) education and participate in space education festivals such as the Novato Space Festival, the Bay Area Science Festival and the STEAM Symposium for teacher development.
Our chapter is in its third year of activity and seeks participants and leaders! Would you like to play a role in growing our space education programs, events and fun? Contact us!
The Space Society of Silicon Valley was honored with a National Space Society Chapter Special Merit Award for "political and legislative actions" in 2014 based on achievements in providing space education to the public with special focus on education and outreach in space legislation, policy and law. S3V provided a wealth of information about space law as a developing practice, pending space legislation, space settlement roadmapping and strategic planning, space entrepreneurship and economic development, STEAM education and space partners.
