Rocket Lab is committed to backing the next generation of aerospace experts through our Education Programs. We're on a mission to:
- Inspire young people of all backgrounds to fall in love with space and STEM and remove barriers to them achieving their dreams;
- Inform the public about our work, missions, and goals;
- Involve local organizations and community groups in Rocket Lab’s growth;
- And build relationships between the space and education industries in Aotearoa and beyond, facilitating more growth in both.
Currently, our Space Ambassador Program makes it possible for Rocket Lab Space Ambassadors – people who work in all areas of our business, who are passionate about Space and STEM – to connect with young people and visit with schools either in-person or online.
If you are a staff member at a school, or a community or education institution, you can register your interest in having a Space Ambassador visit your students via our Registration Portal. Becoming a Space Ambassador School means you’ll not only be able to organize Space Ambassador visits, but you’ll also be the first to know about any of our developing Education Programs and how you can be involved.
If you are a student or other interested member of the public, you are welcome to sign up to our Education Mailing List, which means we will keep you in the loop about new opportunities on the horizon to get involved, informed, and inspired with what we do here at Rocket Lab.
If you would like to know anything specific about Rocket Lab’s Education Programs, you can e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
