“Inspiring & unleashing the next generation of Mzansi’s scientists & engineers”
13 -17 March 2023 Gauteng, North West & Free State
Educators want STEM initiatives that embrace engineering, math and science. The challenge is how to implement this multidisciplinary program without increasing any fragmentation/separation already existing between classes.
These workshops will help teachers and students to understand how engineering, science, physics and math can help shape their varied careers opportunities in the space sector. The workshops will help prepare South African kids for space careers, not jobs.
Our goal is to demonstrate the many careers the space sector offers.
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.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
- Career Guidance Counsellors
AUDIENCE AT EACH LOCATION:
20 select teachers
30 select learners
Venue set up: 10 round tables, 2 teachers and 3 learners at each table.
BY THE END OF THESE WORKSHOPS
Participants will be able to:
- Teachers: Will leave with 4 lesson plans they can use immediately after having
seen the lesson demonstrated.
- Learners: Will be inspired to dig deeper into STEM subjects.
Participants will be empowered with knowhow
to locate accessible resources.

End of Workshop
As we embark on a new year, our spirits are rejuvenated and we are excited to embark on bigger and more impactful projects. As our valued partners and stakeholders, we want to give you an outline of the projects FASESA will be undertaking throughout the year.
INCREASING STUDENT INTEREST & ENGAGEMENT IN SPACE EXPLORATION
In its second year, the increasing student interest and engagement in space exploration will feature a wider and varied panel of experts in education and space matters. The conference will cover the progress made in the past year in addressing student interest in space exploration and feature live displays of technology and assets that will assist the core aim of the conference.
In order to create a space economy throughout Africa which will create learning and employment opportunities for learners, scientists, and experts across the continent, Future African Space ExplorersSTEM Academy (FASESA) will be spearheading the signing of the Artemis accords by African Nations. Working with national governments and the Artemis Accords. FASESA will facilitate an educational multi-lateral masterclass whose goal will be to onboard multiple African nations onto the Artemis accords.
WORLD SPACE WEEK SOUTH AFRICA
FASESA will host the inaugural World Space Week in South Africa. This event will offer an immense opportunity to African educators, administrators, officials, policymakers and students in getting acquainted with space exploration, space science education, and networking space. This unique event will serve as an introductory model, transferable from primary – High school, and add to deepspace contributions and social engagement from future space leaders.
SPACE FINANCE & INVESTMENT CONFERENCE
In order to boost the space economy in Africa, FASESA will host the Space Finance and Investment Conference. This conference will feature global businesses, multiple government agencies, and experts in the space economy and finance sector. This will be aimed at unearthing business opportunities in Africa including funding models to help accelerate the space economy footprint.
FASESA will also be putting in motion plans to expand our current footprint, within the next eighteen months, we look to have a presence in Nigeria, Ethiopia, Tanzania and Uganda. This will allow us to reach more children across the continent and create a community of space enthusiasts, while simultaneously creating educational and employment opportunities through shared technology, information and resources.
We look forward to shaping the future with you in 2023 and beyond! Your friends at FASESA
