School Engagement

The Satellite Applications Catapult is keen to provide young people with the knowledge, tools and skills they require to realise their ambitions for careers in the growing space sector.  By 2030 the UK government has estimated that there will be 100,000 space sector related jobs available in the UK, with the majority of growth in the applications of space data and technology.


We are often involved with a number of events designed uniquely for schools. The Catapult actively promote our employees to join the STEM ambassador scheme to support our school outreach activities to give young people a tangible careers in the space sector. To see our latest events, please visit our events pages.


We regularly support a number of programmes and activities for young people. See our news and blog pages for the latest updates.
