- Provide hands-on after-school and in-school STEM-focused student enrichment programs
- Give low-income kids the opportunity to participate in AGI Space Missions Simulation Laboratory courses in our Lockheed Martin Space Education Center, where they'll learn STEM principles while using the same systems space professionals use
- Introduce students to robotics at our Mars Robotics Laboratory in our Lockheed Martin Space Education Center
