NZ Rocketry Challenge

Become a rocket scientist! Master the laws of physics as you build a launch vehicle for our trusty 'Eggnauts', and compete against other teams to launch them to a specific 'orbit' and recover them safely.

International Space Apps Challenge

Help change the world, by joining this 48-hour 'hackathon' - to help solve space challenges. No space expertise necessary.

World Space Week 2012 (4-10 October)

A festival celebrating what Space means to us here on planet Earth. 

KiwiSpace are the NZ coordinators for World Space Week - and our goal is to get as many NZ space organisations having events or undertaking outreach during this week.

KiwiMars 2012

Early 2012: A crew of six Kiwis and Australians travelled to the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah, USA – for a two-week mission of science and exploration.

Learn about their fascinating mission - why they went and what they learned.


Online webinars, guest speakers and other opportunities to interact with real astronauts.

Space Balloon

Low-cost ways to get your experiment to the edge of space.

Hubble 3D

Provide your students or audiences with an outstanding documentary, highlighting the amazing images that the Hubble Space Telescope captures - as well as the fantastic story behind the launch, repair and servicing of this iconic spacecraft. Hire this movie now, from KiwiSpace.

Guest Speakers

Have someone from KiwiSpace give a talk at your school or function, on a range of exciting and educational topics.

We have speakers in the Wellington and Auckland areas, and can travel to other areas by arrangement.

What If? Competition 2012

If you were on the International Space Station when a disaster struck on Earth, how could you help?

That's the question we posted to NZ schools – how could space technology and platforms be used in emergency situations.

Cassini Scientist for a Day 2011

Students were invited to think like a scientist and help select the best target for the Cassini spacecraft, as it investigated the Saturn system.

2012 edition now being planned – get in touch if you're interested in participating.
