What does a job in the space industry look like?

Through our video series, students can meet professionals who share their space journey, answering questions like: "What does a career in the industry look like?" and "How did they end up in this field?"

These videos are also great for career advisors during those all-important discussions about future career paths.

But we don't stop at videos.

For classroom teachers, we provide downloadable resources designed for educators and students. Suitable for students aged 14 to 16, the resources include individualised curriculum content reflecting each space career professional's role.

So, what now?

We're reaching out with a simple call to action:

  1. Watch our video case studies – they're both informative and inspiring!
  2. Download our curriculum-aligned resources (linked to each video) and the associated Australian Curriculum links, and
  3. If you found these resources helpful, share them with the rest of your network.

Our universe holds mysteries and wonders that we're still unravelling. Let's inspire our students to be part of that journey, discovering new horizons and pushing boundaries.

The Space Careers Wayfinder series provides the compass; all they need is the enthusiasm to explore.
