Monte Pescador – Solar System Ambassador

From field experiences to the classroom, from telling stories to instructing projects, Monte loves being a Solar System Ambassador for NASA, but especially loves getting the next generation prepared for the next exciting adventure, interplanetary travel. They say that those who cannot do, teach. Call on Monte to do just that.

Along with private classes and events, Monte has lined up with other programs to provide schedule events as well:

  • KidSpace, Westminster, CO
  • Girl Scouts of Colorado
  • Past Repeating Projects
    • Boulder Science Fair

Mission 2020

SSA Mission

The NASA Solar System Ambassadors program is a public engagement effort that works with motivated volunteers across the nation to communicate the science and excitement of NASA’s space exploration missions and discoveries with the people in their communities.


Monte’s Vision

A long time dreamer of becoming an astronaut, I have never been more proud of this country than into the 21st century and preparing to study and colonize Mars. This is not just science fiction anymore, and it is a job that will need a great many younger dreamers to make it take off.

The 2020 Pandemic Changed Everything

Online Events Available

Given enough notice, online events are possible. With less time, the Girl Scouts found out, Monte can whip something together with a lot less flare and yet still have in mind the age group to make it fun, interesting for both kids and parents, and interesting.

Knowing that we go into the 2020-2021 school year with pandemic-induced changes to how school will run, if you need an astronomy or space-exploration event planned and/or implemented online, let Monte know, the sooner the better.
