Orbit Earth Expo launched in North Carolina in 2015. Based in Charlotte, the program delivers content to elementary and middle schools all over the state. Teachers and administrators love the alignment to NC Essential Science Standards and the unforgettable reference for students. These hard to teach concepts in earth and space science are a snap for students recalling information for the EOGs or NC Final Exams after experiencing Orbit Earth Expo!
