Schools in space program

Bring your students along to our school sessions.

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.

School sessions re-commence Wednesday, 15 February 2023. Bookings are now open!

Prefer to attend virtually?

We run many sessions online as well.

See our digital sessions.

Health and safety information

Duty of Care rests with the teachers or adults associated with each group.

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


Please arrive at your allocated time for induction. All visitors are encouraged to wear masks when inside the Discovery Centre. Masks are not supplied so we ask that visitors bring their own.

Any student or teacher who are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 such as shortness of breath, sore throat, cough or a fever, must not attend the Australian Space Discovery Centre.

See further information on SA COVID-19 directions.

Drop off zones for school coaches

The closest drop off zone for school coaches is on the western side of Frome Road, in front of the University of South Australia. There is an event bus park just after the main bus stop.
