Where will Mission Discovery lead you...

Overview 🌍

Mission Discovery Brisbane will take your learning to the next level ✨

Join our Rockstar astronaut instructors at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) in 2022.

You’ll work in small teams, under the close guidance from NASA astronauts, NASA personnel, space scientists and world-renowned professors. Your goal is to design an experiment, that could benefit humankind on or off the planet.

We’ll help you every step of the way, each team will be assigned their very own expert mentor to help guide them through the week.

At the end of the 5 days, we’ll select the best idea, build it at NASA and launch it to the International Space Station (ISS) to be conducted by the astronauts on board.

We welcome groups big or small. Most students come on their own and form quick long-lasting friendships ✨

Mission Discovery Brisbane will be held at the Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Gardens Point Campus.

QUT is committed to providing real world learning experiences and research solutions across a broad range of fields. Their strengths include award-winning teaching, relevant research that benefits the community, a commitment to entrepreneurship and creativity, high student satisfaction and excellent graduate employment outcomes.

Each day students will register at the QUT Gardens Point Campus, an incredible venue that will be the Mission Discovery base for the proceeding 5 days… Sign up today and launch your future 🚀

A word from Astronaut Steve Swanson

"With Mission Discovery, students are getting a rare opportunity to participate in something that is unimaginable for most young people. It will not only help them gain knowledge about space but also enhance their self- belief and capabilities. I would have loved this opportunity as a student, who knows where this journey will take them."

- Steven Swanson, NASA Astronaut & ISS Commander

On the Space Station 🛰

There have been 30+ student experiments worked on by astronauts including Major Tim Peake.

Take a Sneak Peak at Your Week 👀

Mission Itinerary 💫

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 🤩
