South Australian Space School

The aim of the South Australian Space School (SASS) is to provide a stimulating and rewarding educational experience for the most intelligent and talented of our Year 10 students in South Australia, to focus them on a career in science or engineering. This was the first state-based Space School to be established in Australia, and has been operating since 1997. Co-founder Olivia has been one of the key organisers since that time, ensuring the continued success of the program. Further details are available at
