The Mission Team

The SpaceBuzz education programme is a testament to the collective minds of a diverse team comprising education experts, virtual reality (VR) specialists, accomplished scientists, and astronauts. This dynamic group came together with a shared vision of making space education accessible, engaging, and inspiring for the younger generation. Our team has meticulously combined their extensive knowledge and unique insights to craft an experience that takes children on a virtual journey through the cosmos.

With a strong foundation in educational principles, immersive technology, scientific accuracy, and real-life astronaut experiences, the SpaceBuzz programme is truly a pioneering initiative in the world of learning.
