The Unlimited Space Agency’s mission is to inspire and help train the next generation of young scientists and space explorers.
We design and deliver multi-award-winning, inspirational projects for children and young people aged 5-11 that increase engagement with and raise levels of attainment in STEM subjects.
We aim to help address the long term decline in the participation of young people in science and, in particular, to create more opportunities and positive role models for girls and young women.
We are passionate believers in the power of art, storytelling and play to inspire and educate. Children enjoy learning and learning should be fun. All our projects are designed to be enjoyable as well as providing a real scientific stimulus.
“The Unlimited Space Agency is great. Their approach to inspiring children about science is rigorous, fun and it works! I’m proud to serve with them on their mission to inspire the next generation of scientists and space explorers.” Tim Peake, astronaut
UNSA’s patron is Tim Peake, a British astronaut with the European Space Agency (ESA) who will be visiting and working on the ISS.
Increasingly we are working with highly experienced academics to design innovative research models and produce quantitative data that demonstrates the success and value of “informal” and project-based learning experiences.
