3D printing in Space! Learn how materials are being shaped into the resources needed for space with Fleet Space Technologies & Makers Empire in this special space event!
Join us for an insightful Australian Virtual Astronaut (AVA) Challenge webinar!
In this webinar, we will discuss 3D printing and more as we look at how materials are being shaped into the resources needed for space.
After the presentations, we’ll open the floor to a Q&A session, giving attendees the opportunity to engage directly with our distinguished speakers. The webinar is primarily targeted at students from Years 5 – 10 and their teachers, but is open to anyone with an interest in space and science.
We will also share more about the upcoming Young Space Explorers event in Sydney, an essential part of the Australian Virtual Astronaut Challenge program and open to all schools to get involved.
