The space industry is not just for astronauts - it takes a wide variety of people and skills to make space missions and projects successful.
During this webinar, designed for Key Stage 3 students, teachers and parents/guardians, you will learn about some of the careers available to young people in the space industry, what people do in their jobs day-to-day, what skills they use, their journey from school to their current job, and where schools can find more support. You will also have the opportunity to ask your own questions.
If you would like to attend, please register for this webinar and you will be sent the joining instructions by email.
Speakers from RAL Space will share stories of their different career paths and explain their projects which involve innovating for the future:
We will be joined by Kierann Shah, manager of the National Space Academy, who will talk about the support they provide to schools to help engage young people with STEM subjects using space as the inspiration, and how they facilitate pathways into the space sector.
This online event will take place via Zoom webinar. Attendees will not be visible or audible, but will be able to ask questions via the text-based Q&A and chat functions. This event is particularly aimed at students in Key Stage 3 (age 11-14) but all age groups are welcome to attend.
