I’m in space, get me out of here is an online STEM engagement activity for school students. Student-led, it connects students with a wide range of STEM professionals showing diversity in their careers. It’s a moderated, flexible, online activity, that is safe, secure and easy to use.
There are loads of benefits to taking part. Students will gain confidence by asking questions, learn more about STEM outside of the classroom, meet working engineers and discover career paths they may have never considered, and see STEM as something that’s ‘for them’.
It’s quick and easy to set up, and text-only – no audio or video required. It’s accessible from the classroom or home, and is super-flexible – you book chats at times that suit you and your classes.
This is free, although there may be a cost for fee-paying and international schools to take part.
