Friends and colleagues
If COSPAR 2021 were a rocket sitting at Vandenburg … or perhaps at Mahia Peninsula, from where my own team’s next pair of cubesats will launch pretty soon after the Assembly is over … then we’d be into the final countdown and all-systems-go for launch.
Miss the Live Stream? The recording of the Public Lecture is now available.
What is it like to work in space exploration and specifically onthe M2020 Mission? Here is your opportunity to learn first hand about M2020 from one of the key NASA scientists Dr Adrian Brown. Participants even have the opportunity to ask Dr Brown questions.
COSPAR-K is a Free Space STEM Event that is running in partnership with the NSW Department of Education’s STEM Industry School Partnerships (SISP) Program.
It coincides with an international scientific assembly, COSPAR-2021-Hybrid and is the dedicated STEM Park hence the name COS(+)PAR-K was born.
COSPAR-K will feature two hero zones: our Awesome Activities Arena and Spectacular Speakers Schedule.

With Australia’s new Space Agency (ASA), Australia is buzzing with space conversations. There’s a momentous research push, an explosion of space-related start-ups and more opportunities than ever for young Australian’s to be part of the journey.
STEM education is critically important for Australia. The demand for strong workforce skills in STEM areas has reached a fever pitch, while at the same time there has been a fall in students studying these subjects at high school and university. The time for better engagement is now. COSPAR-K provides this opportunity.
The skills that learning about Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths bring will be the foundation of the future world economy. These skills, along with enterprise skills such as creativity, critical thinking and digital literacy will be the key to creating a world-leading future workforce in Australia. 50 years on from humankind’s first steps on the Moon, the value of an inspired STEM generation is reflected in our daily lives.
COSPAR-2021-Hybrid is making a deliberate effort to reach out to and motivate young people to pursue STEM careers that will contribute to Australia's evolving high-tech economy as a lasting legacy of this Assembly.
Get involved, be inspired, bookings opening very soon.
