Children, we are told, are inspired by two things: space and dinosaurs. Britain’s industry is helping to inspire our next generation into science and engineering, boosting the skillset of the nation. The industry’s award-winning education outreach activities help spread the benefits of our world leadership into schools and universities across the UK.
The UK space industry’s already employs Britain’s most highly skilled manufacturing workforce. But it is also the most inspired workforce in Britain. No other sector offers young people the chance to help find life on other planets and help save life on our own planet. UK space science is undeniably the best in the world, and helps underpin Britain’s world leading science base.
