Meet our Founder Rebeca Rodriguez
I’m very excited to have you exploring the science, technology, engineering, and math fields with us! When I was 11 years old I visited NASA Johnson Space Center and from that moment on I was hooked on space exploration and science research. Fortunately, my parents were highly involved and provided many hands-on activities like model rocketry to fuel my passion of becoming an aerospace engineer. I credit those hands-on experiences that showed me the application of all the theory I was learning in school to the success of completing my aerospace engineering degree and master’s in space management. The hands-on projects and experiments kept me focused on what I would be doing after school. Once I was working in the space sector, I noticed kids did not have the same hands-on opportunities I did and therefore decided to start Xplore BoX. I hope Xplore BoX facilitates a convenient way to expose your children to the sciences and that it sparks and nurtures their interests.
Have fun exploring. There’s still so much to discover!
