Intergalactic Education is a software company that teaches kids about science, math, and the future. We have a strong focus on getting more young girls and disadvantaged minorities interested in engineering and technology. Our team has developed over a dozen educational computer games that motivate students through the use of incentives and competition. Students compete across schools for high scores while new game content unlocks upon completion of the different educational modules. We improve test scores while simultaneously helping students understand how a mastery in one of the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields, can lead to a fulfilling career in the space industry. Our premier product, Space World™, tells the story of how this generation of kids is destined for the exploration of the solar system.
Timm Johnson and the Mason SBDC have helped Intergalactic Education by providing invaluable advice on how to identify our customers and grow our company. We participated in the first Mason Innovation Commercialization Assistance Program (ICAP) in the spring of 2018. Since that time, Intergalactic has found its way into hundreds of schools and afterschool programs through various partnerships. The company has found recognition in the aerospace community as well. The Washington Space Business Roundtable (WSBR) graciously donated several thousands of dollars for the purchase of over a dozen iPads which are being shared among schools throughout the area. More recently, Intergalactic Education Founder and President – Justin Park – was invited to give the closing keynote speech to an auditorium of several hundred students who participated in the Prince George’s County ESSA Title I Summer Space Camp.
Looking forward, Intergalactic Education anticipates a large amount of growth in 2020. We have a new website and Online Store that are launching at the end of March. Additionally, company management intends to close a second (post-seed) round of investment in the coming weeks. If you are interested in participating, please contact email@example.com
