Holly Melear
CEO & Founder STEAMSPACE Education Outreach & KSF Space Partner

Holly Melear will be discussing the need to create a pipeline and movement of youth for the upcoming demands in the commercial and governmental space and technology industries. With our world changing and growing even smellers we globally approach living and working off-world, humanity will need to be planning on who will be leading and working in these communities. How do we create not just surviving communities, but thriving communities? By creating a movement of youth globally, who will be engaged with industry leaders, we can support the broadening pipeline for industry in free space and space settlement planning on the moon, Mars, and beyond.

In aspects of off –world employment, we will need workers ranging from asteroid mining, engineering, R&D, space agriculture, and architecture to list a few. However, it will not only be these more tangible and scientific needs for having a truly thriving new settlement off-world. We will also need all other fields of industry and employment to make this endeavor possible and successful. We will need the educators, the artists, and the out of the box thinkers. We will need those to help guide future generations on policy, treaty, ideology, and law.
