How to create tomorrow's Space Punks!

We are privileged to share this range of programs, activities, partners and videos that show how we are linking learners to Space Industry futures:

SPACE 2101 5 day missions

SPACE 2101 is our premier series of STEM + Design Thinking events being held around the world. Over 5 days, students in the UK, Saudi Arabia, Dubai, Australia and Thailand (so far) interact with Astronauts, learn new STEM skills and collaborate with their team to use Design Thinking to create solutions for the Space Industry.
Astronauts have included Cmdr Susan Kilrain, Col. Dan Tani, Charles 'Sam' Gemar, Sian 'Leo' Proctor and Prof. Gerhard Thiele.

Lockheed Martin Australia Partnership

Australia’s future Space Workforce has taken a giant leap forward, with Lockheed Martin Australia Pty Ltd announcing a landmark partnership with STEM Punks. We will develop and deliver an industry-linked 10 year space-focused program to grow the future Space Workforce.

Future Learning Magazine - Space Edition

Our January 2022 Magazine was focused how access to Space is opening up - even for students. Read interviews with Rocket Lab, Axiom Space, HI-SEAS Commander, Blacksky Aerospace and more HERE.

Mars Society Ambassador - Jonathan Nalder

Jonathan is our resident 'space nut' and has been creating Space-focused learning experiences for the last 6 years. He has recently been the only Australian to ever participate in the NASA funded 'Spaceward Bound' program that takes teachers to the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, and has also been recognised for his work via a Mars Society Ambassadorship.

Space 2101 for Schools

This program sees schools complete up to 4 modules all focused on the question of 'what will work in space look like in the year 2101?', and 'do you have the skills to be a part of such a future?'. Students learn the tech and people skills needed with advice from space industry professionals. Email us to book or learn more.

Dr Michaela Musilova and HI-SEAS

As Commander of the HI-SEAS (Hawai’i Space Exploration Analog and Simulation) Moon and Mars base who has worked with NASA and the ESA, and as an advisor on the STEM Punks board, Dr Michaela is bringing her vast experience to our strategic space programs and to the classroom. From recording special video's like this one so kids at home can learn about space base design, to using the STEM Punks Smart Garden Sensor at HI-SEAS, to answering student questions, she is a continual inspiration.

Astronaut Greg Johnson

Thanks to, our students have gotten to hear from Astronaut Greg Johnson. His talk is a vital part of our Space Education classes and never fails to vividly explain to students just what takeoff and leaving Earth actually feels like.

Gilmour Space Tech

Engineer Nick Zettl is a Guidance, Navigation and Control Engineer with Gilmour Space Tech who has been kind enough to share with students just how possible a career in the space industry now is.

Space Habitat

Dr Michaela Musilova and STEM Punks team member Jonathan Nalder shared about our work at the 2020 Space Habitats Event hosted by Habitat Marte. View the presentation online here.

#SpaceEducation Articles with

Space Australia is the new hub website for all news to do with the Space Industry and beyond - and team member Jonathan Nalder is writing articles like this one to share how STEM and design thinking are helping students get on board.

Smart Space Garden Workshop at World Science Festival

STEM Punks is pleased to be collaborating with the World Science Festival to run this workshop - in an actual garden. Students will code smart garden sensors and learn about life in a space habitat while testing soil moisture at the Brisbane Mt Cootha Botanic Gardens.

Dark Sky Alliance Australasia

We recently were inspired by the work of the NSW Distance Education program to launch a 'STEMPunk-ified' Dark Sky class and of course had to speak to Marnie Ogg who founded the Australasian Dark Sky Alliance that advocates for all the benefits that lowered light pollution can bring. Look out for her interview in an upcoming Future Learning Magazine edition.
