Game Changers and Change Makers
There is no better time than National Science Week to get excited by all things Science and STEM and to be reminded of their importance in our day-to-day lives and into the future.
We are excited to announce three updates to our Mission Discovery Program, which we are convinced will helping to shape Australia’s next Game Changers and Change Markers!
Firstly, anyone who books by the 26th of August 2018, will go into the draw to win one of five places in a VIP morning tea with Steve Swanson, Astronaut and ISS Commander!
Secondly, due to popular demand, we are opening the program to all secondary students (not just years 7-10). Students will of course be grouped according to age.
Thirdly, the astronaut for the program has changed from Dr Michael Foale to Steve Swanson – Astronaut and ISS Commander.
