The AstroNuts Kids Space Club was created by my 12 year old son Brett and I five years ago in order to bring elementary school kids together to learn about "everything space". During our "missions" we have amazing volunteer space educators engage the kids on rocketry, astronomy, STEM and robotics. We also do lots of educational outreach and we created an annual event called the "What's Up In Space Camp and STEM Contest" which exposes hundreds of kids to the wonders of space and science.

One of the most important areas of study for us is astronomy, and because we are not a charity or a business and we receive no funding, we cannot afford to purchase a good quality club telescope. The telescope is essential in igniting the imaginations of all the kids. It would be a strong learning tool and it would be made very accessible to all the kids that would join us on our nightly astronomy expeditions.

Risks and challenges

This biggest challenge is bring supportive sponsors on board that believe in you and yet also understand that you are not a business and not a charity. We have no way of generating funds so anything that does come our way is because sponsors see the merit in our efforts to bring quality, imaginative education opportunities to all the kids everywhere along with
the necessary educational resources like the telescope that we are fundraising for.
