Feedback: What did you think of this show?:
Nicholas Eftimiades was the guest for this special Space Show program. Nick began the interview by providing us with the background for his founding the Federation of Galaxy Exploers (FOGE). In listening to Nick tell us about his plans and the implementation of them, we soon learned the reasons behind his success in only four short years and just how his organization, rich with volunteers, ha been able to enrich the lives the children participating in the program. We also learned that the parents usually stay with the kids for the programming, they do not simply "drop them off" and return later to pick them up. Its clear that FOGE is reaching more people than just the school aged children in the program. In response to questions, Nick explains how to become a volunteer in the program and how to get your school involved in the program if it is not already involved. As FOGE is in several states already, spread across the country rather than being regional, simply send a note to email@example.com and you can engage your school in their program. As pointed out several times during the interview, the program is parent driven, not teacher or school driven. Nick Eftimiades has bold plans to bring FOGE to every city and state in the country and its clear from talking with him that he is an action person, a person that implements his program and does not just talk about it. His program has camps, works with children from all ages and grades and its very impressive.
