The GET Group workshops are all about making the jump into the world of work a little easier for our students. The aim was for them to learn about customer service skills and prepare them for the workplace. The workshops were a fun way to learn and gain NCEA credits.

Space Up! Is a high school club which is free to join—and is aimed at girls from year 9 to year 13, although any high school students in Aotearoa are welcome to join. It is a platform for young people to learn, engage and connect with others interested in space, and to have opportunities to engage with women mentors working across the space sector in Aotearoa New Zealand.
Members will have immediate access (through the website, but also available as an iPhone and Android app) to a range of resources, including the online Space Up! Community Forum, provided thanks to the generous support of the University of Canterbury, where they can access a range of space resources - including but not limited to live and recorded presentations, workshops, webinars, networking events, and opportunities for engagement with women already on space career trajectories. These resources and opportunities are designed to help develop their enthusiasm and knowledge of space and learn more about Aotearoa’s space sector and the types of careers they could pursue in space. The club will also offer opportunities for members to participate in exciting space-related activities and in-person events.
With in-person launch events planned for later in the school year, we have an exciting first activity for students who sign up to Space Up! in March—a logo design competition! Students have a chance to see their awesome logo for Space Up! Emblazoned across our websites, on t-shirts, and other merchandise. The WISANZ team cannot wait to see all the stellar designs from our creative young space wāhine!

Zealand high school email address, ending in .school.nz, to
