Uwingu as a new model for funding Space Education

Short Description:

Someone once said that the best way to predict the future is to invent it.  If we believe that science and engineering education is the path to an economically vibrant future for our kids and our country, it’s time to get moving.  The new for profit company, Uwingu LLC, seeks to kick start this process through a website that connects people to the sky via commercial products and uses the profits, in part, to fund education. Through, anyone can contribute, connect, and learn.
Uwingu’s goal is to be a destination for teachers and parents interested in bringing space science to their kids – and to make Uwingu a successful new model for funding STEM education.  
Around the world, science and engineering education is facing challenges, both inside the classroom and out.  Budget cuts for STEM education at all levels of government, high stakes testing, and sometimes even the limited availability of STEM teachers all contribute to a growing concern that we aren’t developing the next generation of scientists and engineers.
