Space Cadet Force

Engineering your future in space.

Welcome to our Space Cadet Force page.

Our Space Cadet Force program is aimed at children from the age of five to sixteen, if your child is interested in space and would like to further their knowledge, have fun activities, develop their maths and coding skills then this is for them.

If your child is interested in becoming an astronaut, the subjects that would be important for them to learn in school would be:

1. Science: This would be one of the most important subjects for aspiring astronauts. They would need a solid foundation in physics, chemistry, biology, and earth sciences to understand the workings of the universe, the properties of matter, and the effects of space travel on the human body.
2. Mathematics: Mathematics is essential for all aspects of space travel, from calculating trajectories to measuring distances and conducting experiments. Astronauts need to be proficient in algebra, geometry, calculus, and statistics.
3. Engineering: Astronauts work with complex systems and equipment, so an understanding of engineering principles is crucial. They need to understand how machines work, how to troubleshoot problems, and how to fix them.
4. Physical Education: Astronauts need to be in excellent physical shape to endure the rigors of space travel. They need to develop cardiovascular endurance, strength, and flexibility. Learning about nutrition and developing healthy habits would also be important.
5. Computer Science: Computers are an essential tool for space exploration, so astronauts would need to be proficient in programming and computer science. They would need to be able to operate and troubleshoot computer systems in space.
6. Foreign Languages: Astronauts work with people from all over the world, so it would be beneficial for them to learn one or more foreign languages. Communication is essential in space travel, and being able to communicate with people from different cultures and backgrounds would be a valuable skill.
7. Geography: Astronauts need to understand the geography of Earth and other planets to plan and execute missions. They need to know the physical and environmental characteristics of different regions, as well as how to navigate and map their surroundings.
8. History: Studying the history of space exploration would provide aspiring astronauts with a sense of context and perspective. They could learn about the achievements and challenges of past missions and the people who made them possible.

Overall, a well-rounded education that includes a strong foundation in science, mathematics, and engineering, along with physical fitness and communication skills, would prepare children well for a career as an astronaut.
