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 🤩

A word from Astronaut Michael Foale

"Mission Discovery is the most complete and exciting educational programme I have worked with. I’m always excited to see where the students imagination takes them and watch them develop throughout the week. When I was young, I would have loved the chance to have an experiment flown in space."

- Dr. Michael Foale CBE, Astronaut & ISS Commander

On the Space Station 🛰

Astronauts aboard the ISS have worked on over 30 of your student experiments, including Major Tim Peake.
