STUDENTS IN SPACE
The project is Australia’s first University-School mission to the International Space Station. We want to document this unique undertaking, feature interviews with both undergraduate and high-school students, create a constant feed of exciting social media content and ultimately release the experience with footage of the launch and the experiment running in space.
Critically the Swinburne students involved in this are to mentor high-school counterparts in all functions (including this media component) throughout their project involvement.
High-school students will be in the lab creating this is experiment every Tuesday afternoon and multi-day sprints during the holiday break. Ideally we need to capture some of this, and have ongoing interactions with the media students from the high-school at a similar rate.
National press and interest in this experiment will be guaranteed. Prizes can be arranged too for best writing, filming etc. We can do a stellar-oscars at the end of this mammoth undertaking
Beginning in August, ending in June when the experiment returns, we will have key moments to capture:
Start date: August
NASA flight check: pre-Christmas
Final redesign / check list: Feburary
Launch on SpaceX rocket: 31st March
Space station experiment: Commencing April, running ~ 1 month
Experiment returns: June
