Dream big – as big as Space!
In Years 7 & 8, students have the exciting opportunity to experience ‘space school’, travelling to the United States for two weeks to build skills in goal setting, project planning, independent thinking and problem solving.
Students get up close with the experts – astronauts, engineers and scientists at NASA – to learn about science in exciting environments such as NASA’s Johnson Space Centre in Houston and stay at the US Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville.
Students experience the real-world applications of science through hands-on activities such as shark dissection at the Texas A&M University; crime lab investigation at the Texas Medical Education Centre; and train as astronauts with immersive simulation challenges and real training equipment at the US Space and Rocket Center.
75% of the fastest growing occupations require a STEM-based education. In the race to solve the world’s scientific challenges, there is a constant need for fresh ideas and new talent and careers where STEM skills play a major role.
The HASSE Junior Space School program is an optional adventure, but throughout the Cripps Program at Korowa, students focus on developing STEM skills.
