Planet Field Trip (Middle School)
Teachers, be sure to take our 6 minute teacher training before signing up for the event.
Only teachers can sign up for IGNITE events. If you are a student, please let the IGNITE Teacher at your school know that you are interested in this event. If you don’t have IGNITE at your school, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to get started!
Students will be introduced to the company and participate in a critical thinking activity helping students relate to what doing STEM at this company is like. They will also hear from women in STEM tell their stories, share their challenges, and how they overcame them. Students will then participate in a live question and answer session!
Planet builds tiny satellites the size of a shoebox, from scratch, just like a robot. Then, we launch them from a big rocket that goes into space. Once they’re floating around in space, they take selfies of the entire earth, every day. These pictures tell us the story of our planet and what things we need to fix or change!
All students attending the workshop will receive Planet swag!
