Higher Ground Discovery!
creating responsible global citizens
The Higher Ground Astronautics Academy is an experiential programme combining STEM skills with underwater robotics and pool-based SCUBA. The programme simulates the NASA Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory, where astronauts train prior to scientific missions aboard the International Space Station. The programme simulates this experience through a wide range of STEM learning, problem solving tasks and SCUBA training, culminating in students conducting STEM experiments in a pool-based simulation of the Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory.
