The response to the 2020-2021 Space Industry Work Experience Program was amazing with 162 applications received from 51 South Australian schools. We shortlisted 29 students to be placed during the 2021 January, April, July and September school holidays. If any of these shortlisted students are not placed during this time, they kept on the list until a relevant placement becomes available.
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.
Applications will then open in late September/early October 2021 for the 3rd Space Industry Work Experience Program.
Please watch this website for further details in September 2021.
