Mission Itinerary 💫

At Mission Discovery, 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 🤩

Most unbelievable experience of a lifetime, making forever lasting friends!

Paula, 15
It gave me an opportunity to get to know myself and gain confidence

It was an amazing experience that allowed me to interact with people my age from all over the world interested in science.

My favourite part was definitely the chance to talk with so many different people and make meaningful connections with your teammates and roommates.

I gained insight in many new developing ideas while researching for the experiment proposal and gained confidence in myself to talk to other people and present in front of a crowd.

I believe that this has given me an opportunity get to know myself and gain confidence when meeting other people because nobody knew anybody.

Dia, 15
It was an amazing experience

I feel so lucky that I had this opportunity to be a part of mission discovery. It's just unbelievable to think that I worked with astronauts and workers from nasa. I feel much more motivated about following my own dreams and not to worry about what other people think about it
