“What a wonderful movie that connects kids with STEAM in such a real world and impressive setting as NASA.
I loved the diversity of the participants’ genders and backgrounds and the length was just long enough for a science-type documentary as well. Many kids will be talking about this film with their science teachers.”
– 7th Grade Teacher, St. Louis, MO
WHY THIS FILM?
Zero Gravity shines its brightest not just during the incredible sequences in space, but right here on Earth where innovation, inclusion, and opportunity meet — in the classroom. Friendships are made, codes are broken, and dreams are awoken during the team’s programming mission amongst the stars, all in service of developing important life lessons along the way.
Coding is a universal, skills-based language that children from around the globe can rally behind, and Zero Gravity provides a unique peer-to-peer perspective that aims to inspire, ignite, and launch new generations towards the world of possibilities in STEM-centric career paths, and most especially into categories of jobs that don’t yet exits.
86% of parents worry that their child doesn’t have all the skills they need to be successful in their future. So, parents are looking forward rather than at the current school year alone:
Over half (55%) of American parents believe thier child’s dream job doesn’t even exist yet.
68% of American parents believe their child will need to learn to code no matter what field they choose to enter.
Moreover, 77% of American parents believe that coding is the most important skill thier child will need to succeed in the digital economy.
“I had no idea what coding even was before watching.
Now I want to try!”
