This sum­mer, join Bri­tish-Amer­i­can astro­naut Michael Foale at King’s

Col­lege, Lon­don for ISSETs flag­ship ‘Mis­sion Dis­cov­ery’ Space & STEM Sum­mer School from 8 to 13 July 2018.

Mis­sion Dis­cov­ery in­vites stu­dents aged 14 to 18 years old to spend the week work­ing in teams with NASA as­tro­nauts, rocket sci­en­tists and King’s Col­lege Lon­don pro­fes­sors. The aim of the week is to de­sign an ex­per­i­ment which will be launched to the In­ter­na­tional Space Sta­tion and con­ducted by as­tro­nauts on board.

Through­out the week, stu­dents will hear a va­ri­ety of talks from the en­tire Mis­sion Dis­cov­ery team based on team build­ing, lead­er­ship, space, the sciences and per­sonal de­vel­op­ment.

With help from our bril­liant NASA role mod­els, stu­dents will fin­ish the week by pre­sent­ing their idea to ISSET’s judg­ing panel, and one ex­per­i­ment will be se­lected and launched to the ISS on a SpaceX Fal­con 9 rocket.

Mis­sion Dis­cov­ery was launched in 2012. Since then we have worked with 12 NASA as­tro­nauts, held pro­grammes in four con­ti­nents for over 5,000 stu­dents send­ing 17 ex­per­i­ments into space on five dif­fer­ent rock­ets, with a fur­ther seven ex­per­i­ments sched­uled to launch over the next year.

Mis­sion Dis­cov­ery win­ners have ap­peared on NASA TV, BBC, ITV and Chan­nel 4, along with nu­mer­ous press pub­li­ca­tions in­ter­na­tion­ally. If you’re look­ing for a chal­lenge, which could change your life and build your fu­ture, this is it!

“I am de­lighted to be back at Mis­sion Dis­cov­ery. With this pro­gram, stu­dents are get­ting a rare op­por­tu­nity to par­tic­i­pate in some­thing that is unimag­in­able for most young peo­ple. It will not only help them gain knowl­edge about space, but also en­hance their self-be­lief and ca­pa­bil­i­ties. I would have loved this op­por­tu­nity as a stu­dent, who knows where this jour­ney will take them.” Steven Swan­Son, naSa a Stro­naut & ISS com­man­der

“Mis­sion Dis­cov­ery was bril­liant; a mo­ti­va­tional and in­spir­ing pro­gramme that I was thrilled to be a part of. I en­joyed ev­ery as­pect of the Sum­mer School, from work­ing in teams to pro­duce our ex­per­i­ments, to lis­ten­ing to lec­tures from as­tro­nauts and pro­fes­sors at King’s Col­lege Lon­don.” eleanor, Gum­ley HouSe ScHool,
