About Us

Our Story

Team Xplore BoX is made up of professionals with experience in the Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields. We enjoyed the hands-on projects and science activities as kids that ultimately led us to careers in STEM. As kids we built pinewood derby cars, rockets, planes, made stop motion videos, and enjoyed every minute of it! We aim to expose the future generation of Xplorers to the challenging AND fun world of STEM.

Xplore BoX 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!
