South Australian secondary school students will have the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of the state’s thriving space sector, thanks to our 2nd work experience program. This unique work experience program will give South Australian students’ personal insight into the space industry, an understanding of skills and qualifications required, networking opportunities and act as a catalyst for inspiring young people to pursue STEM careers.
The South Australian Space Industry Centre (SASIC) and the Department for Education’s Advanced Technology Program have collaborated to run the 2nd Space Industry Work Experience program. Many leading Space industry companies in SA have expressed interest to join this program in 2020/21.
The 2 to 5 day Space Industry Work Experience placements will take place from the end of November 2020 until late January 2021 with students working alongside mentors at SA space companies and organisations (placement length depends on individual mentor capacity).
Students enrolled at a South Australian Secondary School, who are currently 15 years of age or older, will have the opportunity to register their interest for a placement in the Space Industry Work Experience program.
Placements for the Space Industry Work Experience program are strictly limited and all applications will be assessed by an expert panel including representatives from SASIC and ATP. Applicants will be shortlisted for the positions and interviews may be required to determine the final successful placements.
