Prepare For Liftoff
Prepare For Liftoff leads the reader through both fun and educational activities to simulate what it is like for an astronaut to prepare for a mission to space.
Some activities include designing your own space suit, instructions on how to make Tang, and a packing list. This activity book encourages children to think creatively while dreaming up big ideas.
In 2014, I applied for the AIGA Pour Back Fund and went on to win a $500 grant. With that money I was able to hold Prepare For Liftoff workshops at the 826 Tutoring Center in Seattle, WA.
Prepare For Liftoff is now being sold in the 826 gift shop where 100% of the proceeds are being allocated to support urban youth after-school programs.
In 2018, I brought the Prepare For Liftoff workshops to The Thinkery in Austin, TX. In these workshops we focused on tactile materials to design a space suit.
