Out of This World Project Management!

Partnering with the Project Management Institute Educational Foundation (PMIEF), the Space Foundation integrated tools and techniques from PMIEF’s PM Toolkit for Teachers, for student field trips to the Space Foundation Discovery Center’s Mars Robotics Laboratory (MRL). Students develop, plan and execute a mission to Mars using PM techniques, in one of four mission categories: Searching for Life; Searching for Water; Geology: Lava Tube Search for a Mars Base; Engineering Design Challenge. Year one of the grant is complete. For year two, students from Pune, India, will be conducting missions from their school, driving rovers remotely in the MRL.


Bryan DeBates administers the development and implementation of the Space Foundation's global education programs that support science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) education.

He supervises the Space Foundation's Discovery Center, and its education labs, which include: Science On a Sphere®, Mars Robotics Laboratory, AGI Space Missions Simulation Laboratory, and the Battelle Underwater Drone Lab.
