Schools in space program

Book your students into one of our free exclusive school sessions at the Australian Space Discovery Centre.

Our program is designed for year levels 7 to 12. If you would like to bring your primary school class, we ask that the teacher attend a general session first.

We offer school standard and workshop sessions from Monday to Friday between 10am and 11:30am.

Teachers can book a session by emailing our team at book@discover.space.gov.au along with the following information:

  • year level
  • group size including adults and students
  • choice of session (standard, workshop or virtual).

Our school programs are free of charge. You will be emailed a Trybooking link to secure your session. Please note school bookings must be made at least two weeks in advance.
