Space into Energy

Space into Energy Smalled

From systems engineering to satellites, the discoveries and developments made in space exploration have informed the energy industry for decades, and vice versa.


A collaboration between Aberdeen Science Centre and TechFest, supported by the Institute of Physics (IOP), the ‘Space into Energy’ programme gives young people a glimpse into the inner workings of these exciting fields and how the skill sets required for each sector often overlap.

Featuring experts from each industry, participants will learn about innovation, teamwork and leadership through hands-on activities and interactive sessions, empowering them to discover their unique talents and how they can be the problem-solvers of the future.

We’re packing a whole range of activities into our 2021/22 programme with activities for all ages. From family days at Aberdeen Science Centre to interviews with industry professionals, there is something to inspire everyone.
