Reach For New Heights
GEMS World Academy (Singapore) has partnered with Actura, the exclusive partner for CASE Space School (California Association for STEAM Education), to offer our students a fantastic opportunity.
The CASE Space School International Study Program provides students with the opportunity to get ahead, and to learn and apply transportable skills in one of the world’s most profound and inspiring STEAM environments, NASA. Students unleash their passion through immersive and exciting astronaut training, including the 5DF (5 Degrees of Freedom Chair) used by the Gemini and Apollo programs, MMU (Manned Maneuvering Unit) used by astronauts when performing un-tethered spacewalks, 1/6th Gravity Chair to simulate walking on the lunar surface, and the Multi-Axis Trainer to simulate disorientation experienced in re-entry to Earth’s atmosphere.
