Space exploration is an emerging global megatrend and recent developments in space travel may be setting the stage for a striking new era of Space Exploration. As evidenced by the recent leaps and strides in space exploration by the likes of Sir. Richard Branson, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos, space exploration is an expanding vocation that will provide vast socio-economic benefits to a nation.
FASESA understands that cultivating an interest in space exploration begins at a young age. Through introducing the vocation to children, then guiding and equipping them with the resources and skills to explore the subject further, will greatly increase a nation's ability to produce thought leaders in the field, who will form the basis of future space programs
About The Conference
The Conference offers a great opportunity to the African teachers, administrators, education officials, and students to get acquainted with the Space exploration in the curriculum, and each other. Space education experts sharing new teaching methodologies with African institutions will make a long-lasting connection.
This unique event will serve as a model, transferable to other K-12 institutions and lead to deep space contributions and societal engagement from future space leaders.
This event will bring together teachers, administrators, managers, students, and our space education experts to discuss current challenges and innovative solutions for Increasing Student Interest and Engagement in Space Exploration.
This event will offer teachers a first-hand opportunity to learn about how space exploration in the curriculum is important in early childhood education and beyond.
The teachers and students need to know and understand what the Space Science Sector is and the career opportunities it offers. '"Space'' does not mean they have to be an Astronaut. The impressive development of Space Applications gives immense opportunities to those who study IT, Agronomy, Biology, Chemistry, Nutrition, Geography, Medicine, Law, Management, Communications, Electronics, Physics, and so on.
Quickly harness dynamic thinking through value added models.
