Save The Youth Inc. Training Rocket Scientist

42761440_1573773571927639_r.jpegDr. Eugene Edwards is the only Rocket Scientist born and raised in the City of Bessemer (Jefferson County Alabama).  After retiring (with many inventions) from the Army Aviation Missile Research Development & Engineering Center, Dr. Edwards’ goal is now to produce future Rocket Scientists in Alabama and other underserved communities in the United States.  

This training is the only one of its kind in the state of Alabama and is not known to be available anywhere in the United States for K-12 students.  Students (ranging from age 5 to 18) are trained in an exceptionally different program for the development of future professionals.

Students in Save The Youth Inc’s Dr. Eugene Edwards training program are taught the first phase of how to recognize, develop, perform critical assessments of both model missile and rocket components that are similar to those used by NASA and the Department of Defense.  

Students participating in the program learn about the many future scientific jobs that youth from Jefferson County and throughout the United States could obtain and become critical employees of the Department of Defense Space Command and other professional organizations.  

Save The Youth Inc is trying to raise $750,000 to configure their building and train future Rocket Scientists throughout Jefferson County, the State of Alabama, and the nation.  Youth from anywhere in the United States will be allowed to utilize the services and be trained to become Rocket Scientists and support personnel.
