 not a business

 not a charity, 

not a for-profit

 and not a not-for profit

…we receive no funding

we are a completely volunteer-driven organization

…we are

 “just” 

an amazing kids space club!

Our cosmic-club was created 

7 years ago 

 May 15, 2010 

by my 14 year-old son Brett and I 

so that elementary school kids could get together once a month and learn about

 rocketry

 astronomy

robotics

technology

and ”everything space” 

with the assistance of 

amazing volunteer “skype guests” and

 volunteer “in-house” educators.
