She isn’t an astronaut and she doesn’t have a technical background, but Carie Lemack is inspiring the next generation of astronauts through education.

Three years ago when Lemack was looking for a career change, she kept thinking about a career in space. She’d gone to space camp four times as a kid and always kept that passion, but wasn’t sure where her industry fit was.

Then, she saw a need for space education in the classroom and ultimately co-founded DreamUp, an edtech startup that provides space-based educational programs for learners and educators.

From New Learning Times

Carie Lemack is the cofounder and CEO of DreamUp, the first company to bring space-related STEM training into classrooms, and to bring student-designed experiments into space, on board the ISS. A former national security policy expert/advocate and the producer of an Academy Award-nominated film, Lemack is a proud supporter of all students reaching for the stars.

Carie Lemack attended Space Camp in Alabama no fewer than four times as a young person, so it’s no wonder that as an adult she is busy trying to send students’ research projects into space.

“My mom used to call me her space cadet,” said Lemack, who recently moved her space-based education DreamUp public benefits corporation to Boulder from Washington, D.C.
