About the Conference



Our aim is to bring together the most important experts in the space science industry across Africa and the rest of the world in order to stimulate healthy discussions and potential solutions for Space Exploration for students. This conference will provide a forum for education and knowledge transfer, to expose participants to the latest Space Exploration Problem Solving solutions. The most agile webinar software will be use to handle more than 60 anticipated participants online.

The exploration of space is among the most fascinating ventures of modern times. It has carried first instruments, then people themselves, beyond Earth’s atmosphere, into a remoteness that until relatively recently was hardly known or understood. Although its borders already have been crossed, space still holds mysteries and, undoubtedly, surprises beyond number. Space Education in the curriculum will allow students to access education, and increases economic prospects, broaden opportunities for social mobility, and contribute to the empowerment of students STEM, and Space Exploration knowledge. This conference will bring together leaders and decision-makers within the Astronomy & STEM community – engineers, scientists, entrepreneurs, educators, agency representatives and policy makers to discuss current challenges and innovative solutions and it will contain opportunities to learn about how space exploration in the curriculum is important in early childhood education. eTutorSA is building the African Space Network for kids and Future Space explores . We provide a platform that allows students to learn about Space science and technology. Students will be able to connect with other space enthusiast from different geographical locations. It’s time for African Underprivileged Schools to embrace STEM education.


Conference Learning Outcomes

This conference will help Educators/Teachers prepare their students for STEM careers and an equal need for extraordinary teacher leaders to inspire students. we aim to empower teachers to build leadership competencies by creating innovative STEM programs for their students, schools and communities. This conference will be hosted by the actual scientists and engineers working on exciting endeavours like the International Space Station and explorations of Mars and the planets beyond. Participants will hear from the astronauts leading the charge in exploration! Come and learn about the bold vision to send humans back to the Moon and off to Mars! Attend sessions presented by STEM experts, engineers, scientists, educators and receive ready to implement classroom ideas and experience minds-on, hands-on fun. Network with fellow educators, take back a multitude of cross-curriculum ideas and activities. This conference is for grades R to 12– and not just for science teachers! The activities presented can be used for science, language arts, math, history, and more
