What is more exciting and inspiring than outer space? Cuberider invites you to give your secondary STEM students an educational advantage that is out of this world! This webinar will explore our educational program that is designed with student engagement in mind – launching classroom experiments to the International Space Station.
Imagine capturing this awe and wonder in a classroom environment, to inspire and engage learning in science, technology, engineering and mathematics? The Cuberider Space Program does exactly that. Designed by educators, for educator, the Cuberider Space Program has been made for easy implementation, giving you back your time so you can enjoy teaching, and not spend your weekends finding content that your students might like.
Forget the mountains of paperwork and risk assessments for an excursion and take your students on a journey that is truly unforgettable – their very own space mission.
This 45-minute webinar will deliver;
– A walk through on how we’ve successfully inspired thousands of students through their own space program
– An easy to implement STEM solution that gives you your time back and give you the tools you need to give your students a memorable educational experience.
– Save you time and effort in updating your class schedules and plans.
– Show you how to really inspire your students.
Solange Cunin is a 24-year-old,self-confessed space geek who grew up ‘off the grid’ on her parents’ farm in northern NSW. She was given her first telescope at the age of eight and told herself at fourteen that she would become an aerospace engineer.
But it wasn’t until she watched the live stream of a SpaceX rocket launch four years later that she knew her long fascination with space would become a reality.
Solange has experience in the space industry including roles in management, research and operations.
After studying a Bachelors in Mathematics and Aerospace Engineering at University of New South Wales, Solange co-founded Cuberider, a leader in innovative STEM education, which brings access to space down into the classroom.
