National Space Academy

The National Space Academy programme of student masterclasses, teacher CPD and careers events is delivered by a network of outstanding teachers and project scientists that use the context of space to teach physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, geography and applied science to GCSE, A-level and BTEC students and their teachers.

Its purpose is to materially enhance the size and quality of the UK science and engineering skills pool. Government, Industry and academia have all expressed concern about student progression onto both academic and vocational pathways in STEM areas and the impact this will have on future economic growth and prosperity.
