The space travel industry has been advancing rapidly over the past 50 years since man first landed on the moon and is set to completely revolutionise again in the next 50 years. With companies like SpaceX and Blue Origin making it cheaper and easier to get into space, and companies like Virgin Galactic working to make it as comfortable and stylish as ever, we’re seeing advancements come to life that were previously only thought possible in sci-fi movies.
Our Junior Space Designers online program will see students exploring these advancements and learning about how they were made possible through smart engineering, innovative design and big picture thinking. From there, they will be applying their new found knowledge when presented with a series of challenges over a week aimed at getting them to design, problem solve and create.
This program will run as a short course over one week. Students will be attending online workshops on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoon as they work to bring their ideas to life.
