National Space Academy Student Masterclasses

National Space Academy

National Space Academy Masterclasses are intensive education sessions which can be aimed at students aged from 11 to 19 years old.  Masterclasses can be delivered as a full or half day, or in workshop sessions of one hour, and all sessions consist of curriculum-linked and subject-specific content that is appropriate to the age group and level of the class. 

The curriculum content of these Masterclasses is introduced through cutting edge space science and engineering research contexts; including recent and important historical space missions as well as the way that space enabled technology affects our daily lives.

All National Space Academy Masterclasses have a strong practical element including hands on activities and opportunities for student involvement.  In addition to the curriculum content, Masterclasses include examples of careers relating to the space sector as well as more generalised space careers information.
