Our team

Since launching in 2008 we have engaged with tens of thousands of students, teachers and space industry professionals.

We started in Leicester and now deliver all over the world thanks to our expert Lead Educators, Space Advocates and other space experts.

Outstanding subject specialist teachers seconded to us from their schools. Outstanding because they have won awards and been recognised nationally for their excellent and inspirational teaching. Our Space Advocates and Lead Educators are based all over the UK.

(And if you're wondering what the difference is: Space Advocates take care of our Space to Learn project, while Lead Educators are responsible for delivery outside of this project!)
