It came from Planet X

Suppose life was discovered on another planet, what would it look like? how would it survive and which species would be top of the food chain? Our cadets will delve deep into the eco system and through meticulous studies in adaptations they discover in the world around them. using their notes, drawings and brains they will create an eco-system for a fictional planet before bringing it to life using computer simulations.

Fit for space


Have you got what it takes to survive the ravages of space? Can you perform under pressure?

Shuttle training Taurus13

  • Fit for space takes you through a cut down astronaut training program taking in all the aspects of fitness, nutrition, teamwork, physics and mathematics that you need to cope with the rigours of space.

  • Students will take part in activities and exercises developed by some of the world’s leading space organisations, discover how their bodies work and are affected by the environment.

  • They will also participate in Mission control and flight simulations developed by top scientists and aeronautical enthusiasts complete with software to take away for further studies both .

  • It will be fun, hard work, rewarding and with any luck the students will earn their wings.


  • Space Explorers Academy is a series of progressive NC linked courses that build upon one another to create a further learning environment for enthusiastic students outside school.
