Mission Itinerary 💫
Get ready for an unforgettable Summer School experience!
Our team of 'rocket stars' will take you on a thrilling journey through a diverse range of themes that will inspire and motivate you like never before.
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 🤩

It was a really great week and I'll always remember it. I've made international friends who I still talk to daily.
Mission Discovery @ Kings College, NASA astronaut
"I’m excited to share my love of STEM and space with the Mission Discovery students in London this July! They have the opportunity to take what may seem impossible and launch into a new possible. I know the week at King's will not only change their perspective of Earth and space, it will transform how they see themselves in their future. Let’s get inspired!"
