Use the free resources on the Australian Virtual Astronaut Challenge. In this resource, your students complete a 9-week STEM design sprint based on challenges facing NASA’s Artemis and the Australian space industry. There are four scenarios to choose from;

  • Earth Observation
  • Robotics
  • Home on the Moon
  • Growing Food in Space

All downloadable PDFs and videos are freely accessible and the program has been designed to be delivered flexibly. Therefore teachers can use as much or as little of the materials as they wish. It could be finished in a couple of lessons or over a number of weeks.

We created this jointly with STEM Industry School Partnerships and it is proudly supported by AWS in Communities.
