Unleash Your Potential at our Mission Discovery Oxford Space & STEM Course

Our team of Rockstar instructors, including NASA astronauts, space scientists, and University of Oxford professors, will inspire and guide you throughout the programme.

In small teams, you'll take on the exciting challenge of designing an experiment with the potential to benefit humankind. With expert mentors assigned to each team, you'll receive personalised guidance every step of the way, ensuring you reach your fullest potential.

At the end of this immersive 5-day experience, the best idea will be selected to come to life at NASA. Your experiment will then fly to the International Space Station (ISS) on a SpaceX rocket, where astronauts on board will conduct it, turning your dreams into reality.
