Event description

Description

ISSET’s Mission Discovery Summer School programme is a great opportunity for ordinary students to do something extraordinary.

UK and international students from ages 14 - 18 get to work with NASA Astronauts, rocket scientists and NASA personnel for a week.

In teams, students will propose an idea for their own science experiment; the best idea will be launched into space and carried out by Astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

We take over 200 students a year, broken up into teams of 6-8. We team people according to age and try to achieve an equal gender split per team. You can request to be in the same team as another student (please send us an email prior to the programme).

With help from brilliant Astronauts, NASA role models, Astronaut trainers, NASA personnel, scientists and engineers; students will learn about space and STEM through a variety of exhilarating hands-on activities, based on themes such as:

  • NASA leadership and team building
  • How space exploration benefits life on Earth
  • Experiencing the environment of space
  • Looking at different kinds of experiment and what makes them great
  • How you succeed in your dreams and ambitions

The cost for the programme is £450, however limited spaces are also available for a residential place which is advised for those based outside of London. The Residential package is an additional £500; covering; accommodation, meals and 24-hour supervision. The Residential package begins from 5pm on Sunday 8th July (one day before the programme). Please contact us via admin@isset.org or 029 2071 0295 to opt-in for this package.
