Throughout the week you will hear a variety of talks from our experts, based on a range of themes including team building, leadership, space, the sciences and personal development.

Your team will be assigned its own Mission Discovery mentor to help you every step of the way.

Just like the makings of any astronaut crew, the days focus is on bringing you together. By the end of day 1, you and your team will be functioning as an elite unit.

Now you’re ready to take on your first space mission. We introduce you to the design brief. You and your space squad will work quickly to pull together ideas.

Let’s finalise those ideas and work out how your experiment is going to work in microgravity.

You’ve done it, look how far you’ve come in only 4 days. Your experiment is ready for lift off! Let’s turn your incredible work into a presentation and get you prepped for the final tomorrow.

All the hard work is done, now it's time to present your idea to our friendly judges and accept your Mission Completion certificate and awards at the Mission Discovery closing ceremony. YOU DID IT 🤩

An amazing experience :))

It helped me learn a lot about not only space and science, but also a lot about myself and others.

I feel more confident in myself as it forced me to work on my social skills for every workshop, but even during the evenings at the accommodation. The opportunity to work on projects at a higher academic level will be very useful for when we go to university.

Oliver, 17
loved every minute of it!

Very interesting and incredibly fun with a very nice group and presenters. I now feel more motivated to work hard in school so I can fulfil my dreams of working in the space sector

Seren, 16
Inspirational on an International scale

Meeting brilliant young people who possessed big ideas and specialist knowledge was truly inspiring. There was encouragement to look at the world of work competitively, while also focusing on bettering oneself by learning from those around. Mission discovery encourages you to execute the brilliant ideas that you invent, and whether you fail or succeed you will grow from the experience.

the best summer school experience ever!

It was an amazing experience where I did so many amazing things and met so many great people. I will carry this experience with me througout my life.

Gwendolen, 15
it was an amazing experience

I feel more confident in what I want to do when I'm older and has motivating me to work hard in reaching my goal. it has definitely inspired me to properly consider being an astronaut or work in space science as an adult and has also given me more confidence in working as a team and working with new people and stepping out of my comfort zone with talking to new people and presenting my groups project.
