(BPT) – Frito-Lay Variety Packs is committed to fueling young girls’ dreams of exploration, discovery and achievement by teaming up with actress and science fiction star Sonequa Martin-Green for the return of its Back-to-School Blast Off program. This year, the brand is also partnering with STEM Next’s Million Girls Moonshot to engage more girls in STEM learning opportunities. Frito-Lay Variety Packs is donating $100,000 to further the program’s mission and send the organization’s inaugural Flight Crew of aspiring space explorers to Space Camp®. Families can visit www.FritoLayVarietyPacks.com/BlastOff for STEM activities created by NASA scientists that utilize everyday household items. Simply share a picture of your family’s Back-to-School Blast Off activity with #SpaceForHer and #Entry on social media and you will be entered for a chance to have a ceremonial star named after a girl you know who is passionate about STEM. And for every picture shared, Frito-Lay Variety Packs will make an additional $20 donation to Million Girls Moonshot (up to $50,000).
