Mission Discovery Newcastle: take your education to new heights ✨
Join our Rockstar astronaut instructors at the Newcastle Civic Centre this October ’21.
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 will be held at the Civic Centre in the heart of Newcastle.
The historic building will once again be making history by hosting NASA hall of fame legends Dr Michael Foale CBE & Barbara Morgan from Netflix’s Challenger series. You don’t need to be a science whiz to join the most exciting thing to hit the town this year, we’ll give you all the tools you need to launch your future.
Sign up today and be a part of Newcastle’s history 💫
