The Space Industry Work Experience Program is a unique work experience program giving South Australian secondary school students personal insight into the space industry, an understanding of necessary skills and qualifications, and networking opportunities to inspire space-focused STEM careers.

Though short-term school holiday placements at local space companies, students are given direct access to the state’s innovative space sector where they can learn more about the exciting opportunities across the Hi-Tech and high-growth industry, which continues to expand and thrive.
