This project is solving the Why We Explore challenge.
With the end of the shuttle program, NASA has struggled to remain at the top of mind among large proportions of the United States population. As part of our senior capstone course, Public Relations Campaigns, at the University of Oklahoma, our team was challenged by NASA to generate excitement about outer space and awareness of the International Space Station. We targeted OU students by creating the first ever OU Space Week, a week-long series of events geared towards reaching these goals of excitement and awareness to make OU students feel more personally connected to ISS research. In essence, we tried to answer the question of why we explore by showing students how ISS research impacts us on earth and the potential for huge impacts on our entire society because of ISS scientific breakthroughs. We created a fun environment in which students could get excited and learn about ISS and understand why we explore.
