Psyche

Inner city youth are challenged with many issues when it comes to higher education. Due to enormously inflated college tuition costs, students are often unable to pursue the education that they deserve. Through a partnership with Boys & Girls Club of America, Arizona State University, and NASA, we want to provide opportunities for these kids to pursue higher education; whatever their passion might be. Psyche is one of NASA’s upcoming Discovery missions that will give us insight into the formation of our solar system’s terrestrial planets. One of the hallmark characteristics of the Psyche mission is that it is inclusive of people from various specialties; engaging students and professionals from engineers to artists. Psyche Slam is a tournament that allows students to compete in a variety of ways, working towards a scholarship for online college at Arizona State University. Our goal is to engage these youths through art, athletics, and academics. We hope through this tournament, every youth will be able to launch their potential.
