THE ASTRONAUT’S VIEW

The non-profit SpaceBuzz educational foundation is inspired by the ‘Overview Effect’, that - until recently - only astronauts in space were able to experience. We want every child in the world to follow in the footsteps of astronauts and experience this for themselves.

EDUCATION PROGRAM

Harnessing the power of technology, we have created a VR-based education & outreach program that puts children in the footsteps of astronauts. We inspire and teach children through our experiential learning program about Space, planet Earth and Technology (STEM). Just as with astronauts, 21st century skills like communication, problem solving, cooperation and creativity are important elements within the program. The education program includes a real-life space mission in the SpaceBuzz rocket.

EDUCATION PROFILE

In order to validate and optimize our educational program, SpaceBuzz collaborates with leading scientists to kickstart an international scientific research program on the effectiveness of VR-enabled learning. The first results and reactions of children and teachers confirm our conviction that immersive technologies trigger deeper levels of engagement and inspiration, which in turns leads to effective learning.

OUR GLOBAL MISSION

We want every child in the world to experience the Overview Effect and inspire them to become ambassadors of planet Earth.

Help us to inspire more children all over the world

To roll out our program worldwide we need your help. Therefore we kindly ask you to support us by donating (one-time or on a regular base), which helps us creating a future generation of ambassadors of Planet Earth.

The global launch of SpaceBuzz kicks off with a tour of the USA

Yes, our global launch tour has started. SpaceBuzz is on it’s way to the USA! On Sunday October 13rd, SpaceBuzz will arrive in Houston where it will be presented to 125 international astronauts at the @Johnson Space Center at the 32nd Convention of Space Explorers. We will ask them to provide support and advice on how we can bring the SpaceBuzz dream to their home countries. From Houston, the SpaceBuzz rocket travels to Washington D.C. to be presented to the global space community at the International Astronautical Congress (IAC). Let’s inspire future generations to become ambassador of planet Earth!

Kickstart scientific research

Virtual Reality allows us to develop new and effective ways of teaching children about Space, Earth and Technology (STEM). In order to validate and optimize our educational program, SpaceBuzz collaborates with leading scientists, i.e Prof. Dr. Max Louwerse Tilburg University, and kickstarted an international scientific research program on the effectiveness of VR-enabled learning and the role that virtual humans can play in personalizing learning.

Building of the second SpaceBuzz has started

We are very happy to announce that we received a large donation to build the second SpaceBuzz vehicle in the Netherlands. The new rocket vehicle will be ready in spring next year. With this second vehicle we can double the amount of children we can reach. This is especially good news for all the schools that registered and can’t wait for SpaceBuzz to visit them, but are on the waiting list for 2021.

our friends

Our success has not been possible without our partners including Adessium, Deloitte, Dutch Space Office, MediaMonks, National Geographic, NEMO Science Children’s Museum in Amsterdam and WWF.
