News: U-Explore's new partnership is out of this world


Rotherham education media company, U-Explore and national organisation Space Connections are working together to offer intergalactic careers advice.

Space Connections provides teachers with access to space-related information and resources and has links with a wide range of organisations, including NASA, the European Space Agency, Space City in Russia, The British National Space Centre and the Royal Aeronautical Society.

U-Explore established the highly successful U-Explore interactive, an innovative software solution which engages with young people through cutting edge media.

The partnership will aim to inspire young people to think about careers in space projects and boost the numbers of young people choosing to study and work in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).

Andy Pickles, Chief Executive of U-Explore, said: "As U-Explore continues to grow its partner network to enable us to bring added value and excitement to our national schools platform, we are proud to announce a truly exciting addition to our network through a partnership with Space Connections.

"A key part of our mission is to manage young people's perception of industries and bring a context to learning. Through this partnership with Space Connections, young people will have access to some amazing content to broaden their horizons and provide an understanding of what, in some ways, is a mystical sector, while teachers will get access to fantastic resources to support the delivery of science, technology, engineering and maths."

Helen Barraclough, Managing Director of Space Connections, added: "Space Connections is extremely excited about our new partnership with U-Explore. We are delighted to be working in partnership with such an innovative company that is already enriching the lives of so many young people across the UK. Space is exciting, inspiring and stimulating!"
