Schools in space program

Book a school session, workshop or spot at our holiday program.

Our new Schools in Space program is being piloted at Discovery Centre. The program is intended for school year levels 7 to 12. 

If you would like to bring your primary school class, we ask that the teacher attend a general session first.

Standard session

Students will receive a welcome and presentation from our Space Communicators. They will then have time to explore our Space Gallery and Careers Hub.

This is a 75 minute session.

Bookings are available for up to 40 students.

Liability insurance and conserving visitor safety through Workplace Health & Safety initiatives are core components of the Australian Space Discovery Centre’s operations.
