Space School International Study Program, a specifically developed STEM program that broadens the mind, cultivates drive, and instils curiosity and the spirit of exploration.
Working with astronauts, engineers and scientists, we move away from the classroom to inspiring technologically-advanced locations, and apply a collaborative and contextual learning program.
There are two expeditions, one for Junior students in years 7, 8 and 9; and the second for Senior students in years 10, 11 and 12. Both programs are built on a common three-pillar framework:
- Enriched and exclusive space science activities.
- Inspiring leadership development through teamwork and motivational speakers.
- Engaging personal development program using project management, budget control, risk management for Seniors; and Seven Habits of Highly Effective Teens for Juniors.
Each program has its own unique activities and learning outcomes.
The Space School International Study Program provides students with the opportunity to get ahead, to learn and apply transportable skills in one of the world’s most profound and inspiring STEM environments – through space exploration and science in conjunction with NASA.
The Space School expedition will be a life changing experience that will inspire a new generation of STEM-skilled leaders. Designed to empower young students to embrace and nurture their interest in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics fields, Space School is the ultimate STEM experience!
The core of this program encompasses:
- Enriched and Exclusive Space Science Activities
- Engaging Personal Development Program
- Inspiring Leadership Development
Senior Space School
This is the MBA for Youth. With greater depth, students spend the two weeks in Houston with incredible access to NASA. They visit areas not accessible by the public; and engage directly with NASA experts to design and plan their own space mission within a given budget. An immersive program that hones their individual leadership, project management and communication skills.
Junior Space School
This is astronaut training for youth and is an engaging hands-on adventure. During a week in Huntsville, Alabama, students learn about the history of space travel and the development of space-related technology in the most motivational surroundings. In small teams, they are lead through several simulated missions where they must work together to visit and repair the international space station or land an exploration rover on Mars.
