Seekers Create were honoured to be invited to go on tour alongside the UK Space Agency in the summer of 2023 for an out-of-this-world experience! Seekers toured 13 locations across the UK, exciting the next generation about career possibilities within the growing space sector.
To inspire curiosity and educate visitors about the wide range of STEAM opportunities available in space, from engineers and coders to space doctors, artists, and more.
To harness the power of STEAM to spark interest and engagement and inspire the next generation to pursue careers in the UK space industry.
At each location we delivered 'Seekers Space 2 Doodle' community mural and created a range of STEAM games.
Matt Archer, Launch Director at the UK Space Agency, said: The Space for Everyone Tour has been an enormous success, with families, schools and young people having the opportunity not only to see a rocket up close but learn about the role space has in our daily lives. The UK space sector is world-leading and we require people from all backgrounds and skill sets to work in it. By showcasing the sector and the variety of exciting career pathways available, we can help inspire the next generation of homegrown space talent.
Having engaged tens of thousands of people over the first six of its 10 original tour stops, the Space for Everyone tour extended to to a further 3 locations Wrexham and Glasgow before ending its three-month, 13 location tour of the UK in Plymouth! Seekers enjoyed working alongside key space organisations and STEAM partners, including Space Hub Yorkshire, North East Space Cluster, Space Wales, Orbex, Skyrora, and the World Wide Fund for Nature, who supported the tour across the regions, highlighting the thriving space industry in the UK and its impact on our daily lives.
The Space for Everyone tour was a great learning experience and a beacon of inspiration, shedding light on the pivotal role that space plays in enhancing life on Earth. Visitors, including children, families, and teachers, enjoyed the unique opportunity to witness first-hand how space technologies benefit our daily lives and gain insights into the continuous efforts to explore the great unknown.
Our mission is clear: to empower 'Seekers' with the knowledge, resources, and tools they need to achieve personal and professional goals. Through a supportive community, we foster growth and development.
