Entrepreneurship for Young Leaders

Entrepreneurship for Young Leaders

Students spend two weeks in Houston, San Francisco and Silicon Valley with incredible access to NASA and innovative technology organisations. Touring NASA, cutting-edge space and tech start-ups organisations inspire their innovative futures. Engaging directly with NASA experts, students manage their own space mission, and apply project management and entrepreneurship skills in an exciting innovation incubator. 

An immersive, experiential program that hones individual leadership, entrepreneurialism, project management and communication skills, while building personal skills and lifelong friendships.

Program Framework

 

Built on the foundation of the Seven Survival Skills, the program offers three key pillars of activities including NASA Immersion, Space Entrepreneurship and Personal Development.

CASE Senior Space School aims to deliver students a once in a lifetime, best STEAM experience, at the most inspiring organisation NASA. Returning from the expedition, students are more focused, inquisitive and motivated to pursue their future studies and careers.

Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award

 

 

CASE Senior Space School Programs incorporate online and face-to-face exploration of the Seven Success Principles, based on Tony Wagner’s Seven Survival Skills. Duke of Ed Participants will be taught and assessed on these skills before and after their expedition through structured eLearning, as well as during their time overseas by way of engaging and dynamic workshops. Upon completing this Section, Participants will have learned what these Success Principles mean, and how to apply them to their everyday lives and future careers.

Immersive Activities

 
Stage I – Analysis
 

Students will be immersed deep inside NASA and Silicon Valley locations to experience the technology of the past, present, and future. They’ll tour cutting-edge space facilities and engage with experts to gain inspiration from industry leaders. This stage exposes students to the dynamic space industry to see the latest technology and development in action. 

Stage II – Synthesis
 

Consulting with NASA experts and educators, students are responsible for the US$600 million mission to Mars. Teams will allocate resources to build and launch a rocket, design a water filtration system, build a heat-shield, construct and compete against other teams with their robotic rover, and finally design and build a habitat capable of sustaining life. They will participate in simulated space missions to take on the challenges that may be encountered. Stage Two grows teamwork, communication and crisis management skills in an exciting fast-paced adventure.

Stage III – Thesis
 

CASE ChallengeX, modelled on the global X-Prize that has led to many technological innovations, sees student teams solving real world, space-related problems in this realistic innovation incubator. Students must put their entrepreneurialism into action; working as a team to competitively pitch their proposal to a panel comprised of engineers and scientists from the space industry. CASE ChallengeX fosters critical thinking and problem solving, effective oral communication, and project management skills in a highly competitive environment.

Inspirational Speakers

 

An unforgettable experience awaits all CASE Senior Space School students. During personalised presentations and special events, students hear directly from guest speakers including astronauts, NASA scientists, engineers and CASE Special Adviser Ms Nicole Stott.
