ok if you had one hundred thousand dollars, where would you start, what would you start, what would you invest in or what would you fund when it comes to space exploration, space technologies, just space in general?
keep in mind, this has to be within one hundred thousand dollars.
An outreach program for Elementary and High School students to encourage them to study the Sciences, Math, Physics, etc..
Use part of the money to fund the initial program startup and the rest to help get donations and corporate involvement from local/regional technology companies as well as seeking grants. Then, when there was significant involvement, I'd work at getting NASA's outreach program involved regularly and host science fairs, competitions, speaking engagements, as well as seeking involvement from national companies and government agencies.
Eventually, if the program was stable and had good sponsorship and involvement, I'd add scholarship opportunities and summer internships/retreats for High School students as well as a summer Science Camp for Elementary School students.
