IT'S OUT OF THIS WORLD
"I've done Space Camp for Educators in Huntsville, Alabama, twice; and done Astronaut Training Experience at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, and I think Spaceflight Academy is even better.
I took fifty Year 7-9 students recently and they all want to come again because they had so much fun."
Mark Heinrich. Aerospace Studies, Aviation High
“We know that many students learn best through real world experiences and the programs offered here allow students to learn about the latest technology & build teamwork skills in an interactive and exciting environment."

“The Spaceflight Academy could open doors for students [seeking] careers within the astronautic industry...and advance the possibility of future Australian Astronauts.”
