STEM Education
by Fleet

Exploring space or Earth’s subsurface aren’t just realms for imagination; they are promising career paths. As one of the world’s largest untapped markets for critical minerals and a growing Australian space sector, kindling a passion for exploration is pivotal for the future of the Australian industry and beyond.



Through mentorships, internships, student programs, and more, we are actively shaping the future STEM leaders of tomorrow.

“I love that the kids are so excited to learn and achieve more in this field than ever imagined. They want to look into space, explore it, and walk on the moon. How cool is that?”

Flavia Tata Nardini,
CEO & Co-Founder of Fleet Space Technologies
