Welcome to the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space!
This platform helps kids and teenagers understand science through the lens of aerospace.
Lighting that spark of interest works best when we take topics that kids are generally excited about – like space and astronauts – and link them to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). If they get inspired today, they start on a path to become the builders, makers, and scientists of the future!
We know that it can be difficult to find quality educational content in today’s overcrowded digital landscape. So, we help you get started. We have teamed up with educational experts to make free, high-quality and ready-to-use content, tailor-made for kids in three specific age groups.
Here you will find educational videos, challenges, ideas for experiments and more. All of the content has also been designed with parents, teachers or informal educators in mind, to inspire young people from ages 8 to 18.
