Space for the Future Economy

STEM 2.0 Education Forum – launched in Feb 2023 by Dr Mohamad Maliki Bin Osman – is a platform that brings together stakeholders across government, industry and education to chart the vision of STEM 2.0.

In light of the fast-paced growth of the space economy in the past five years, the sector is now the first stop for solutions and technologies to address global issues like climate control, sustainable food production, disaster management and relief, and management of Earth’s resources are increasingly found in space-based technologies. 

STEM 2.0 is the next phase of development in STEM education to help students enter into high-value verticals like space, deep tech and advanced robotics and to build capacity for the industry.

Space Internship Programme

The Space Faculty Space Internship Programme is a first-of-its-kind in Singapore, giving students aged 17 and above an opportunity to build their professional portfolio as early as possible. It draws on Space Faculty’s global industry network to bring learners the opportunity to work at both major space and deep-tech MNCs as well as startups.

GNSS Innovation Quest

The Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) Innovation Quest offers tertiary students in Singapore an opportunity to leverage SiReNT, a high precision satellite positioning system developed by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) to design and build innovative engineering solutions to improve the lives of fellow Singaporeans.

International Space Challenge

The International Space Challenge (ISC) was established in 2007 with the aim of nurturing students’ interests in STEM through space by being challenged to solve real world problems using existing space technologies. Today, it has evolved into the globally-accredited platform for space, where students, academics, experts and industry players connect.

Space Data Series

The Space Data Series is a programme developed in collaboration with the Office for Space Technology & Industry (OSTIn) to prepare our youths to be ahead of the curve and provide them with an immersive experience of using Space data like satellite imagery to create wide-ranging applications that cover environmental study, land use analysis and landscape monitoring to name a few.

Let's Learn About Satellites

Let’s Learn About Satellites is a course that is designed to give students the foundation of satellite design through engaging satellite theory lessons, CubeSat building, and expert talks. Students can also earn the chance to build and launch a satellite for Singapore at the end of the programme.

STEM 2.0: Space for Our Future

STEM 2.0: Space for Our Future is a series of talks that will take students on a journey to understand how space can ignite their future. Students will get to learn from speakers from world leading universities and global industry leaders that will inspire them to become the next future star.

World Robot Olympiad

The World Robot Olympiad (WRO) is a global robotics competition for young people aimed at developing their creativity and problem-solving skills in a fun and engaging way. With tournaments organised in over 90 countries worldwide leading to an annual international finals, students also get the chance to join and interact with a global community of brilliant young minds.
