The Mission Curiosity programme is a great opportunity for ordinary students to do something extraordinary.
Students from ages 12 and above carry out scientific research with NASA Astronauts, rocket scientists and NASA personnel.
Mission Curiosity follows an innovative conceptual engineering design (ICED) methodology. The ICED methodology is ideally suited to inspire, motivate, and sustain student engagement in science, technology, engineering, and math by aligning their individuality for exploration, creativity, and problem solving to student centric challenges.
With help from brilliant NASA role models, Astronauts, elite NASA personnel, scientists and engineers; students will learn about space and STEM through a variety of exhilarating hand-on activities.
- Developing critical thinking skills: Through hands-on activities and problem-solving challenges, students can develop their critical thinking skills, which are essential for success in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) fields.
- Building teamwork and collaboration skills: The program encourages students to work together in teams to solve complex challenges, helping them develop their collaboration and communication skills.
- Enhancing STEM knowledge: The program provides a fun and engaging way for students to learn about STEM topics, including space exploration, robotics, and engineering.
- Fostering creativity: The program encourages students to think outside the box and come up with innovative solutions to challenges, helping to foster their creativity and imagination.
- Developing leadership skills: The program provides opportunities for students to take on leadership roles within their teams, helping them develop important leadership skills that can be useful in any career.
- Inspiring curiosity and interest in space exploration: Through interactions with NASA role models, astronauts, and scientists, students can gain a deeper appreciation for space exploration and be inspired to pursue careers in STEM fields.
