Schools Space Exploration Live Stream
Monday 21 May 2018 1pm - 3pm

OMGTech! is here to help you inspire and educate your class on the future of space!

Did you know that Aotearoa NZ has already successfully launched a rocket with satellites into space? That opens up a world of new possibilities for careers in the Space and Technology field for our children right here at home in Aotearoa NZ.

Join us via live stream for an engaging talk from NZ space industry leaders including Rocket Lab and SpaceBase.  Find out how they got to where they are and how your kids can get there too. After that you and your students will have the opportunity to participate in science activities by following along in the classroom.

We know that as a teacher you encourage your students to reach for the stars, well now they can! Space, technology and the digital age are shaping out to be hot topics and future careers in our country. Ensure your kids get a head start with this fun and informative session.
