Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Actura Australia has remarked: “FlipRobot
facilitates schools so that educators can adopt STEAM learning with ease. It
starts with the CASE FlipRobot curriculum, spanning from K to 12”
The new Australian Space Agency is set to become the centre
for Australia’s burgeoning space industry, with headquarters located in
Adelaide, SA. The agency is predicted to help triple Australia’s space economy
to $12 billion and create up to 20,000 new jobs by 2030, which is great news
for our CASE Space School graduates!
With Australia’s extensive historic involvement in the industry,
many believe that an Australian Space Agency is long overdue. Countries
including Uruguay, Bahrain, Mongolia and South Africa already have established government
space agencies, however they have minimal to no operational and launch capabilities.
In fact, of the 72 different government agencies that are in existence today,
only 14 if these have launch capability, of which Australia is one.
The Australian Space Agency is capable of launching sounding
rockets – also known as research rockets – and operating satellites. This will
be coordinated from a small Mission Control located at headquarters. While
there is currently no capability or plans for human spaceflight, the
possibility has not been ruled out for the future of the Space Agency, and
Australia may yet have their very own Astronauts.
Currently the primary responsibility of the Agency,
according to the Australian Space Agency Charter, is to provide national policy
and strategic advice on the civil space sector, as well as support the growth
of the Australian space industry and coordinate civil space sector activities.
The Agency is also responsible for delivering on international space
obligations and leading engagement on a global scale. Last, but certainly not
least, the Australian Space Industry has an official responsibility to inspire
the next generation of space entrepreneurs.
Our CASE Space School graduates are this next generation of
space entrepreneurs. They have a head-start on their peers after having seen
inside NASA, spoken to experts in the industry, and developed their own
personal skills including teamwork and leadership qualities. Over the next 10
years the Australian Space Agency will be expanding rapidly, and searching for
candidates in diverse fields such as engineering, robotics, law, biology,
medicine… Space technologies are not just about taking people to the moon, and
a career in this sector contributes to developments in many other industries
including communication, agriculture, mining and more. As stated by Dr Megan
Clark, head of the Australian Space Agency, “Space underpins almost every part
of the broader economy… Space will be a defining domain for human endeavour and
will change what we do on Earth.”
This chapter in Australian Space involvement is just beginning, and our graduates are perfectly situated in their schooling and life-experiences to enter at the ground level and help shape the future of the industry. Our advice is to take every opportunity, follow your dream, commit to your goals, and in the words of NASA’s JPL and our ever-supportive guest speaker Tom Nolan, “Dare mighty things!”

interest in the STEAM field, with the desire to contribute towards the industry
and the empowerment of educating our youth to be the inspiring leaders of
tomorrow. Nerilee is highly excited to join the Sydney-based head office of
Actura in Gordon, on the North Shore.
At the beginning of this year, Actura wanted to provide a
means by which teachers could get a hands-on experience with FlipRobot but in a
format that could fit into their busy schedules. From this, Actura developed
our FlipRobot 2-Hour Initial Workshop.
This workshop was developed to provide teachers with not only practical applications
for FlipRobot, but also ideas on how FlipRobot can be used in their classroom.
The most recent of these workshops was performed at Diocesan School for Girls in Auckland. At
this workshop we brought together over twenty teachers from ten of the most
prestigious private schools across Auckland. Throughout the workshop, the
teachers were invited to participate in activities pulled straight from the CASE Robotic Curriculum to allow
teachers to understand how their students could learn the critical STEAM-related
skills incorporated with Robotic Learning. The result of the workshop was every
school in attendance wanted at least a follow-up presentation at this school
and some even wanting quotes for our FlipRobot products, right there and then.
These FlipRobot workshops are a very powerful tool available to our customers to promote the FlipRobot solution to our school customer-base. These can be run by our FlipRobot Account Executive or, training packages can be offered to train customers to run these workshops.
Should you want any information on these training packages or workshop offers please contact your FlipRobot Account Executive
