When educators adopt a powerful, new mindset, anything is truly possible. We believe that every child deserves to be taught in a way that enriches their minds, that unlocks their true potential, and provides them with lifelong skills to really flourish in today’s world.
Moonshots involve goals that are difficult to achieve, perhaps seemingly impossible. Our mission is to help everyone involved in K-12 education - teachers, students, parents and administrators - "shoot for the moon" by aspiring to, and achieving, transformations that they once thought impossible.
WhyWe Need it The 21st century demands a fundamental shift in the mindset and culture of teaching today. Moonshot education enables every child to reach their fullest potential by being fully engaged and inspired in their learning.
HowWe Do It To achieve, the role of the teacher needs to change from the lecture model to the mentor/coach on the side model. That is the teacher needs to change from the “sage on the stage” to “the guide on the side.” The more a teacher does for a student in the learning process, the less empowered the student is.
Our goal is to have all students experience as much real-world accomplishment as possible as part of their K-12 education, through projects based on their individual interests and passions.
Our goal is to help all teachers transform their practice to include more blended learning, real-world projects, and student autonomy, while still doing the job they need to do.

The inspiration behind the idea of creating mobile libraries that offer youth opportunities to inquire, learn, and grow comes from a deep place of passion and concern. Having been transformed and impacted by many fiction and nonfiction texts during my youth and upbringing, it is crucial for young people to have access to the same opportunities and fundamental rights. It is especially important in today's world where cuts and attacks to vital resources and programs in K-12 public schools are impacting the skills and abilities of our future leaders.
The "Bookmobile" is a concept that involves having a mobile library populated with all types of literary genres, young adult fiction and nonfiction, as well as a "free books" section available to young readers that do not have access to books or libraries at their school sites. Essentially, the Bookmobile will travel to the designated school sites and offer resources to students that are otherwise nonexistent.
