We are:

  • Core team
    A small team of administrators, science people and communicators who lay the foundations for the National Space Academy. They are based at our headquarters at the National Space Centre in Leicester.
  • Lead Educators
    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 Lead Educators are based all over the UK so can deliver masterclasses in schools, colleges and businesses in England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales!
  • Project Scientists and Engineers
    Space industry professionals who help us to provide context to the work we do. They give their time as an in-kind contribution from their organisations. These ambassadors really know their subjects and we are eternally grateful for their input!
