School Trips **Last update 24/12/2016, with new email and mobile number. New website unveiling Jan 2017, so watch this space**
Hi, my name is Stewart Gangell and I have gladly accepted the position of owner, operator and tour guide, taking over from Ken Cohen whom I have known for past 9 years and joined Ken on 2x @ Aussie Space Tours in 2007 and 2010. As the new tour guide I will be organising the exploration of Space Technology designed for 12 or more secondary students and 2 teachers who have a strong interest in science. The trip will usually involve up to 13 days touring and working in NASA Space facilities in the United States and is a great opportunity for students who may wish to pursue a career in Science, Mathematics or Information Technology.
They will learn leadership and teamwork skills, flying Space Shuttle simulators and scuba diving at the Advanced Space Academy® in Huntsville, Alabama together with up to 500 like minded American students. They will lunch with an Astronaut at the Kennedy Space Centre and participate in a realistic Shuttle Launch Experience. They will see the Assembly building and landing facilities and the Saturn V moon rocket and visit historic launch sites of Cape Canaveral. The group may also visit EPCOT at Disneyworld or perhaps an Airboat ride touring the Everglades.
This is the science excursion of a lifetime!
FLY THE SPACE SHUTTLE

A special trip can also be planned for November/December and often used by private schools as a replacement for schoolies and include visits to Washington and/or Houston!
Science schoolies after graduation can develop a thirst for science as a career!
