Pilot Education Programme

Lunar Mission One’s Education Programme is designed to inspire curious young minds around the globe. By engaging in the programme, students have the opportunity to think critically and work collaboratively as they develop content for an epic record of ‘Life on Earth’. Students are also invited to submit Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) based projects as they explore the science and technology of the mission itself.

This programme is a major undertaking. To help formulate and test ideas it is being preceded by a Pilot Education Programme designed to last between 3 and 5 years. Student work submitted during the pilot phase will influence the design and development of the full-scale Public Digital Archive that will be buried, as a time capsule, at the Lunar South Pole.

On completion of the ‘pilot phase’ the education programme will be launched to every school, college and interest group on Earth. At this stage, selected work from our ‘pilot schools’ will be used as exemplar material, ultimately guiding millions of students across the globe.

Lunar Mission One is currently accepting schools, colleges and interest groups who wish to take part in our Pilot Education Programme. Be a partner in this important mission from the very beginning of this ground breaking education programme.

Why should I join the Pilot Education Programme?

In accordance with our core aim for global inclusiveness, student work covering any subject, from any age, any ability and any culture can be submitted for inclusion in the Life on Earth digital archive.
