I listened to astronaut Sally Ride on the radio this morning talking about the importance of science, and science in education, particularly for girls. You can find information about it on her website Sally Ride Science.

The site has links to science festivals, books, science camps and toys for young people, along with information for educators. It also includes a blog with teacher Barbara Morgan, the 1st Educator Astronaut, who launched into space on the space shuttle Endeavour just two days ago on August 8.

Courtney - check out the website mentioned above Sally Ride Science. Click on the "Contact Us" link on the left side of the home page and pick a category to make your request. They also list a toll-free number you can call if you want. I imagine someone there can help you with what you're looking for.
