Interstellar Thinking

The Pearl Project Institute for Innovation in STEM Literacy was named for the pearl found in the body of the oyster. Cultivated over time, the pearl becomes highly valued. Like the Pearl, we cultivate the next generation of STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) leaders, especially girls. With a focus on aerospace, we want to ensure today’s youth are groomed for career opportunities as they take their place in the next frontier of space exploration.

We invite you to join our conversation around the concept of Interstellar Thinking. With a focus on Interstellar thinking skills, we are nurturing youth to become creative innovators, effective problem solvers, well-informed citizens that leverage astronomy for diplomacy while developing entrepreneurial ideas for space tourism.
