Support SteamRocket's Mars Mission: Donate for Plant Mars Project

SteamRocket, the nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) education for children in the Coachella Valley, is reaching out to the community for support in their groundbreaking participation in NASA's Plant the Moon and Mars Project. The organization is actively seeking donations for materials and equipment crucial to the success of this pioneering initiative.

In collaboration with the Institute of Competition Sciences, SteamRocket has assembled an exclusive team of high school students to delve into the complexities of Martian regolith and sustainable crop growth systems. However, to ensure the success of this unique journey into the future of planetary science, SteamRocket needs additional resources.

"We're excited about the opportunity to inspire the next generation of space explorers through the Plant the Moon and Mars Project. To make this journey a reality, we rely on the support of our community," says Elle Decker, President of SteamRocket. "We have curated an Amazon Wishlist with specific materials and equipment for our experiments, and we invite individuals and businesses to contribute to our cause."

The Amazon Wishlist includes items vital to the students' experiments, ranging from laboratory equipment to specialized tools for studying Martian regolith. By contributing to the wishlist, donors directly impact the success of the Plant Mars Project and support the organization's mission to empower young minds in STEAM education.
