Club for the Future At-Home Activity
As more schools around the country shift to online learning amidst the COVID-19 crisis, Blue Origin’s nonprofit is seeking to build community during this isolated time at home by encouraging students, educators and parents to draw postcards answering the question: “What would you build in space that could help Earth?” The postcards will be flown to space on an upcoming flight of Blue Origin’s fully reusable New Shepard rocket, then sent back to the participating students.
A template for creating a postcard can be downloaded – along with to send a postcard to the Club For the Future to be launched into space by Blue Origin (Club For The Future, PO Box 5759 Kent, WA 98064 U.S.A). These instructions are also explained in .

After their flight, each postcard was stamped “flown in space” before being returned to students’ mailboxes through the United States Postal Service.
In addition to the ongoing postcard campaign, the Club will release a suite of curriculum for students to continue STEM virtual learning in the coming weeks.
Founded in 2019 by Blue Origin, Club for the Future brings together teachers and K-12 students from around the world to engage in activities giving youth direct access to space through Blue Origin’s reusable launch vehicles.
