Uhura Training Academy 2018

Thank you to all our cadets and instructors for a fantastic debut!

Gal’s Guide answered the call to boldly go and organized 16 hours of all-ages programming for Starbase Indy 2018. Creating the fun and adventurous theme of Uhura Training Academy, Gal’s Guide was able to shine a spotlight on a science fiction heroine – and the real-life actress that portrayed her – that changed the face of television and space-travel as we know it! Programs like “The Life and Legacy of Nichelle Nichols” and “Secret Codes,” merged STEM subjects with a Star Trek theme provided high-quality learning programs.
