To empower and inspire students to realise their potential to contribute to the future of the space industry.
This involves keeping their passion for all things space related alive, connecting them with industry professionals, and surrounding them with positive, like-minded people who challenge each other to explore their abilities in space related subjects.
WHY WE EXIST
Space is arguably the most exciting upcoming industry of the modern age. What was once an exclusive sector, with a sole focus on rocket launches, is quickly developing into an innovative and fast paced industry. As we witness an exponential growth of space technologies it only makes sense that more and more students are looking towards a career that involves space.
Despite this, there is still no clear path for students to immerse themselves, or even explore what the future of space is all about. It is apparent that the future of Space cannot be limited to Physicists, Engineers, and Scientists, despite the perceived “space career” image.
The problem is clear; for most students, regardless of their passion for space, a future in the space Industry is not even on their agenda. And so we decided that every student in New Zealand should be able to recognise their ability to contribute to the future of the space industry.
Creating opportunities for Primary School children to experience the wonder of space through Single and Multiple Event Learning Modules, some of which include ‘Rocket Building’, ‘Training Like an Astronaut’, and ‘Going to Space’.
Encourage Secondary students to consider space as a viable career option through presentations at school assembly's, workshops, and competitions. Our long term goal is to introduce a NCEA Space Standard.
Empower Tertiary students to explore the current Space Industry through networking, inter-university competitions, Space Conferences, Industry tours, and networking events. A strong focus on Entrepreneurship and what a career in space looks like.
