Space Academy Singapore (SAS), jointly organized by Singapore Space and Technology Association (SSTA) and TriVector International (TVI) is Singapore’s premiere space training programme conducted with a special focus to create public awareness in the space industry, and to promote science and engineering among students. All rounded students aged 14 – 21 years old are selected to participate in this 5 day intensive programme conducted by former NASA engineers/scientists, currently consultants to NASA’s projects. The rigorous course follows the coveted astronaut selection programme. SAS is supported by DSO National Laboratories and A*STAR.
These space engineers were involved in projects such as the Hubble Telescope, Ares l, Apollo Missions, International Space Station and advanced NASA space missions. Students/Teachers will definitely stand to gain from the rich curriculum that includes an academic core of astronautics, aerodynamics, biology, rocketry & propulsion, unmanned technology, international public relations and systems engineering (to name a few), practical elements where they put their classroom work to the test, and experiential components (such as putting projects together underwater, or working under extreme environments in sub-zero temperatures).
The participants also get the chance to visit related industries to get up-close-and-personal feel of the industry and the people in them. There is a very strong focus on team building through space case scenarios, since astronaut selection programme focuses heavily on that for long mission durations.
