Orion Astropreneur Space Academy (Hong Kong), OASA, has been established to accelerate talents and start-ups to enrich opportunities throughout the world, starting from the international city of Hong Kong. We work closely with all universities, mindful employers, and help them establish STEAM programs where youths can learn how to build their own careers in the NewSpace era.
We are in collaboration with PolyU to launch Hong Kong's first STEAM-based programme, grounded on the creation of a small satellite known as CubeSat that has become a mainstay of tomorrow's space technology. The mission of this programme, which aims to remove space debris, combines fun lectures, lab visits and hands-on workshops with mentorship.
This programme will:
unleash students' innovative mindset and expose them to the critical thinking skills needed as an engineer, entrepreneur, platform specialist, and/or a scientist;
enhance students' awareness of the many types of STEAM-related degree programmes at PolyU;
increase students' interest in STEAM through the creation of their CubeSat, thereby igniting their passion for technology, interdisciplinary learning, and the circular economy;
strengthen teamwork and leadership as crucial soft skills for future development in school and work; and
expose them to the fundamentals of design, business, technology, and the New Space economy.
This new 10-session programme is designed particularly for S.4 and S.5 (Grade 10 & Grade 11 / Year 11 & Year 12) students. School Teams of 3 to 5 students shall be formed under each participating school, with a school teacher serving as the contact person of the programme.
There are 10 sessions in this programme. Secondary School teams are required to attend at least 80% of all sessions.
