Story Time From Space is on Kickstarter

A group of literacy advocates hope to raise $35,000 for their project, Story Time From Space.

The funds will be used to cover the costs of video editing projects and starting up a digital library. We’ve embedded a video about the project above. Here’s more from the Kickstarter page:

“Story Time From Space is a completely unique, inventive and fun educational program that builds on the fantastic adventure of space flight to encourage families & students to participate in reading and science. Story Time From Space interweaves two of the basic educational building blocks: reading and science to develop interest and strengthen skills in both literacy and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).”

Welcome to our Kickstarter Publishing Project of the Week, a feature exploring how authors and publishers are using the fundraising site to raise money for book projects. If you want to start your own project, check out How To Use Kickstarter to Fund Your Publishing Project.
