CASE Junior Space School


Training for Young Explorers

In an engaging hands-on adventure, students learn about the development of space-related technology and are lead through several simulated missions where they must work together to overcome challenges and adversities. The inspiring leadership and personal development will motivate students to possess the right attitude and passion for life.

Learning Outcomes

 
  • Development of critical thinking and problem solving
  • Foster interests in STEAM related subjects
  • Effectiveness in collaborative teamwork
  • Application of STEAM in challenging scenarios
  • Greater initiative, responsibility and leadership through influence
  • Curiosity and imagination
  • Pursuit of personal values and long-term goals

Program Framework


Built on the foundation of the Seven Survival Skills, the program offers three key pillars of activities including enriched space and earth science activities, inspiring leadership development, and engaging personal development.

CASE Junior Space School aims to deliver students a once in a lifetime, ultimate STEAM experience, at the most inspiring organisation NASA. Returning from the expedition, students will become more focused and more inquisitive to pursue the subjects they are interested in.

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

CASE Junior Space School Programs incorporate online and face-to-face instruction and practice of the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. As a Certified Facilitator of the Habits, Actura provides our Duke of Ed Participants with structured eLearning modules before and after expedition, as well as engaging and dynamic workshops during their time overseas. These all lead into the STEAM Expert Challenge undertaken by Participants while in the USA, a space-related project providing a framework within which Participants can apply their newfound skills. Upon completion of the Section, Participants will understand the principles behind the 7 Habits, and gain insight into how to apply them to their everyday lives, school work, and personal goals..

Amazing Activities

 

CASE Junior Space School integrates elements of space science, medical science, biological science, and energy to foster student interest in STEAM through experiential learning. The program includes site tours of America’s leading Space centers in Houston Texas and Huntsville Alabama where students will actively take part in training exercises, simulators and lectures.

Astronaut Training

 

Students unleash their passion through immersive and exciting astronaut training; including the 5DF (5 Degrees of Freedom Chair) used by the Gemini and Apollo programs, MMU (Manned Maneuvering Unit) used by astronauts when performing un-tethered spacewalks, 1/6th Gravity Chair to simulate walking on the lunar surface, and the Multi-Axis Trainer to simulate disorientation experienced in re-entry to Earth’s atmosphere. This unique and energetic experience enables students to explore their curiosity, and embrace the STEAM field with new found enthusiasm.

Incredible Locations

 

Partnered with Space Center Houston, U.S. Space & Rocket Center, Rice University and other educational institutes, the CASE Junior Space School creates a positive environment to inspire and motivate students.

Students have the opportunity to visit prestigious locations across Houston which is not possible within the normal realm of the Australian learning environment.

Inspirational Speakers

 

An unforgettable experience awaits all CASE Junior Space School students. During personalised presentations and special events, students hear directly from guest speakers including astronauts, NASA scientists engineers and CASE Special Adviser Ms Nicole Stott.

Personal Development

Developed by Sean Covey, the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens provides students with  principle-based skills to improve self-esteem, build friendship, resist peer-pressure, achieve goals and strengthen core values.
