Space School for the future

In today’s ever-advancing world, we are living at the speed of science. The pace of change in society over the next 30 years will outpace the change we have experienced in the last five thousand years.

  • An expected 50% of current jobs will disappear;
  • Over 50% of jobs in the next 20 years do not exist today;
  • 75% of the fastest growing occupations require STEAM-related skills.

Students can be at the forefront of this exciting era. These students will have an average of four careers and 17 different jobs in their lifetime. It is so important that they learn and master critical transportable skills to successfully navigate the fast-changing landscape shaped by automation, robotic, artificial intelligence, globalisation and collaboration. Empowered with the critical STEAM related skills set, students will not only become the capable and competitive job seekers, most importantly, they will become the innovative job creators.

The Ultimate Out-of-Class Innovation

Today, students have an opportunity to get ahead, to learn and apply these skills at CASE Space School, an immersive international study program designed to inspire a new generation of STEAM-related skilled leaders.

The CASE Space School International Study Program... designed for students to learn and apply critical skills in highly immersive and inspiring STEAM activities at NASA.

The inspired personal and leadership development programs include Dr Tony Wagner’s ‘Seven Survival Skills´ to truly empower students for changing times. CASE Space School broadens the mind, cultivates drive and instils curiosity with the spirit of exploration.

Student Testimonial

"Space School was an incredible once in a lifetime experience for students interested in STEM. The activities we completed were challenging but exciting and I have learned so much during my time here. Along the way I have made friends I know I will keep in touch with, and I have been so lucky to meet the teachers, managers, assistants and more involved in the space school program. At space school I have not only learned all about space exploration - past, present, and future - as well as how to cooperate better in a team, work collaboratively, organise myself. I have also learned that there are so many opportunities available to everyone as long as you have goals and strive to do your best.”

This program is focused on providing relevance to, and inspiring passion for STEAM through exposure to space and broader ‘earth’ science exploration.

Suitable for students 12-14 years old.


Learning Outcomes

  • Development of critical thinking and problem-solving skills
  • Skills in goal setting and project planning to set and achieve targets
  • Effectiveness in collaborative teamwork
  • Application of STEAM in challenging space missions
  • Greater initiative, responsibility and leadership through influence
  • Curiosity and imagination
  • Pursuit of personal values and long-term goals

Student Testimonial

 “Space school has been a fulfilling experience for me and was well worth the cost. There were a lot of unique experiences on this trip that I probably wouldn't get anywhere else. At space school I have learned many things not just academically but also about my friends and how to give good speeches. My experience has been helpful and was very scientific, this is good because I want to do something with science, like an engineer or a rocket scientist. Over the course of space school I have learned how to dissect a shark, the different spacesuits, the path of human space exploration. Overall the trip has been great and I hope to go on something like it again.

Students have the exclusive opportunity to talk and work directly with the experts – astronauts, engineers and scientists at NASA and other facilities.

Get to know NASA, talk to the best in the field

Students will gain a deeper knowledge of Space School through mission simulators to Mars and the Moon, engage in unique and insightful discussions with the best engineers, scientists and managers of NASA. They have the opportunity to visit mock up facility for the assembly of the international space station, design the Mars exploration rover, build and launch rockets, visit the Apollo mission control center and much more.

Highly engaging experiential learning

Space School students will be placed in mission control and taking part in simulated space missions. They will learn about goal-setting, project planning, resource management, crisis management and teamwork.

  • Students develop independent thinking, empowering creativity,
  • resilience as well as developing team spirit and encouraging them to truly reach for the stars.

Space mission simulators and Problem-Based Learning

A project-program design that focuses on the student, with the incorporation of space mission scenarios, problem-based learning and technically-challenging anomalies, leads to the most efficient and exciting learning experiences within a minimal time frame.
