Space is STEM

Space & STEM

Believe it or not, Space is now a career option in Australia.

As a pioneer space SME in Australia, we've engaged in hundreds of STEM talks and activities with schools, universities and the public in recent years. Here are some replays that were made public by our partners, covering what we see happening now and for Australia's future in space.
