Logo of Blue Origin's Club for the Future

To promote exposure to STEM learning and careers, in the coming weeks Benson Hill students will participate in various activities. Students will have the opportunity to design a postcard to be launched into space by Blue Origin on a New Shepard rocket. 

Blue Origin will then return the postcard to students stamped, “Flown to Space.” Students in Grades 3 – 5 will also have the opportunity to learn from an astronaut during a virtual experience. The astronaut and others in aerospace roles will share their experiences in the STEM field during a livestream event.
