Watch on

WE HAVE LIFTOFF! RocketSTEM magazine is now live. The first issue features conversations with Gene Cernan and Jack Schmitt, as well as NASA Flight Director Emily Nelson. Plus, Apollo 17, MSL, Voyager, NASA Socials, an astronomy guide AND more. Take a peek and let us know what you think.


We want to introduce you to RocketSTEM. Its a magazine to promote space exploration and STEM education at the primary and secondary school levels and it will be launching this December (right around the corner). The team at P4N loves STEM fields and we’d like to see more children exposed to space science.

Take a look at this. Its the inaugural issue of RocketStem and you can read it online in all of its ad-free glory. 

What is Rocketstem? RocketSTEM is a nonprofit foundation formed to inspire primary and secondary school students to pursue greater knowledge and careers within the disciplines of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, as well as providing educators with current news and teaching resources.

Rocketstem is brand new and very much worth the read. Check out the first issue right here:

This first issue includes interviews with Apollo 17 astronauts, updates on the progress of the Voyager probes, photographer Julian Leek, a strong look at what MSL Curiosity has done on Mars so far and quite a bit more.

Originally these pages were to be part of our first issue. Unfortunately the Quadrantids meteor shower already will have occurred when the issue is finally fnished in mid January. Therefore we are releasing these pages now and will replace them in the issue with other content. The stories are by Mike Barrett. The photo was provided by Roberto Porto.

Announcing RocketSTEM

RocketSTEM is a brand new non-profit foundation for promoting Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics (STEM) education. Our first project is the startup of a monthly digital magazine centered on providing content geared towards teachers, students and parents as well. The publication will mix in space history – past, present and future – along with interviews, career paths, astronomy lessons, a sprinkling of aerospace news, museum features, NASA tech spinoffs, puzzles, games, quizzes, lesson plans and other educational resources, along with easy-to-follow explanations of the mathematics and physics of all things to do with aerospace and space travel. And that is just for starters.

Our goals basically revolve around a) inspiring the next generation of scientists, engineers and astronauts; b) keeping educators informed on space developments and helping them better work STEM lessons into their classrooms; c) raising awareness of the benefits of space exploration; along with two ‘lessor’ goals d) encouraging international cooperation in space exploration.

The inaugural issue is slated to be out as early as late-December, with a couple months between the next one in order to obtain feedback from educators and the public. The plan is to go to a monthly publication by August 2013.
