“Listen to people and let your mind go wild”
We love this quote by Kate Torgovnick May (Sept 1, 2016; ideas.ted.com). Although it was originally intended to describe the process of innovation and securing patents, it is so perfectly suited to the opportunity that awaits our students. They will hear stories from inspiring people, leaders in their fields of business and research, leaders in the Space Industry. By listening with courage, they can project forward, imagine their lives, and set their own big life goals. To be inspired on location by fascinating people is just one of the adventures that await our next group of students heading on Expedition in December.
Actura Australia has shared Space School with hundreds of Australian students over the past three years and we are now primed and ready for the next adventure. With lift off early December there will be over 400 fabulous young Aussies heading to the US for the trip of a lifetime.
As our expeditions grow we maintain the same small group focus, with the students’ personal experience top of mind at all times. Scheduling behind the scenes is complex, allowing our future STEM-skilled leaders to move through the activities seamlessly, with enthusiasm and a thirst for knowledge that is truly infectious.
Our Preparation events are underway so that all students can meet their Group Managers and fellow team members before we depart. This is the crew they will be sharing their adventure with, and experience shows us that many life lifelong friendships and valuable networks will develop.
It is wonderful to see that our many accompanying teachers and Group Mangers are just as excited!
We will be watching our students grow in confidence with science, engineering, collaboration and creativity.
