About The Space Challenges Program
Prepare the next wave of explorers, leading the way for Humanity in Space.
Develop a generation of young scientists and technologists with an entrepreneurial mindset.
Space exploration has for many years attracted the interest of generations. The core science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines and their application to real problems are the basis of Space Challenges.
Our mission is to help develop a generation of young scientists and technologists with an entrepreneurial mindset, who have been exposed to the best practices in space research and advanced technologies.
Space Challenges offers innovative approach to science and technology, enabling unprecedented opportunities for fostering entrepreneurial skills in the process. The program has revolved around three components: science, technology and entrepreneurship. Space Challenges is a multidisciplinary educational program that is completely practice-oriented.
The program format is comprised by 3 main activities:
- Core lectures led by leading experts
- Workshops and practices
- Team projects
The main advantage of the program is that the participants are engaged into active participation. The workshops and exercises comprise more than 70% of the entire program. At the end of each program’ session, our Space Cadets (participants) have designed, developed and built prototypes of products and applications.
