Testimonials

Students

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the Space School program. I have had an amazing experience by being provided with numerous opportunities and learning fascinating information on areas I am extremely interested in. I have become informed on a variety of aspects of space engineering, such as cryogenics and the technology that is being developed for future missions to Mars. My overall experience has been further enhanced by the incredible people who have been involved alongside me, from our supervisors, to the many new friends I have made. I have loved everyday of Space School and I will remember it for the rest of my life.”

Parents

  •  My daughter definitely had a most enjoyable and memorable learning experience.  I would definitely recommend Actura (iVicon Australia) and Space School to all.  The expedition completely opened her eyes to STEM based experiences which hopefully will inspire her to move towards a career in a STEM based industry.  Hopefully it showed to her that girls can be whatever they want to be and that no career is gender specific.”

  •  Fantastic experience for our daughter. She loved every minute of it. The trip made her aware of the endless possibilities with a career in STEM.”

    Emma Every, Parent of Year 8 student at Wesley College Victoria
  • We can't speak highly enough of the program itself and of our daughter's experience. It more than lived up to her expectations. The only negative has been her sadness on adjusting to 'life after NASA' but that too is part of life.”
