dc.description.abstractThe ultimate goal of AMERICA's YOUTH: Our Future in Space, and educational space seminar for college bound high school age students, is to inspire American youth with the wonders of space, providing them with the desire to overcome obstacles and prepare themselves for a career in America's space program. The problem is comprised of three parts: first, studies show a decline is math and science capabilities and interest in science and engineering degrees by America's youth. Second, with a decreasing population of high school age students; and an increasing number of "Apollo era" experienced scientists and engineers retiring, the U.S. is faced with a serious supply and demand problem. Finally, the aerospace industry has been the largest contributor to America's balance of trade for a number of years; unfortunately, international competition is quickly eroding the country's share of the world's commercial space 'pie'. A solution: (1) a detailed review of four major space related educational programs designed for young people in search of their most effective and most unique aspects when attempting to influence young students; (2) a space oriented seminar with well-known speakers, IMAX quality film, college/university information, aerospace career opportunities, and a group design project all brought together in a fast paced, one day session travelling to a different state each week. To assist the orator, A User's Guide is included which steps through the seminar.en_US
