Details

Our space exploration programmes provide a range of opportunities and contexts for inspiring learning – from Mars missions to Antarctic research. The objectives of the education programme are:

  • encourage children to take up and excel at STEM subjects
  • raise awareness of careers in space-related industries and research
  • raise wider awareness of the UK’s space exploration programme

The purpose of this Announcement of Opportunity is to build upon the Agency’s investment in two areas:

  • the Aurora programme for robotic exploration of Mars
  • the ELIPS programme for microgravity research

New projects are welcomed which make the most of the diverse facilities, experiments and projects in these programmes to deliver effective education.

Closing date for applications is 7 July 2015. For more details, download the Announcement of Opportunity and application form.
