Benefitting Local Communities, Creating Jobs, Advancing Education
and Promoting Sustainable Development
Hands-on, locally based and real-world activities with direct participation by students and professionals, lead by international experts with guidance and support during and after the project
All Projects Are Intended To Be Replicated In All Developing Countries Around The World.
All Of Our Projects Spin-Off As Independent Companies Owned And Operated By Participants
We Strongly Encourage Women To Have Major Roles
Piloted in Enugu, Nigeria and under the leadership and guidance of Ron Mitchell, master grower, the project’s goal is to simulate lunar indoor conditions to grow the highest nutritive quality greens and vegetables for Moon settlements of the future and, to grow the same for surrounding communities. There will be two converted containers (40ft) that will have all the necessary equipment installed. Space Platform leadership, Nelson Nwokoma and John Astor will also be leading the project. The project is intended to spin-off and become its own independent company.
In partnership with the revolutionary satellite imagery company, Planet.com, the project is designed to produce top level satellite data scientists and become the premier low-cost, country based satellite imagery provider to assist with weather warnings, food security, reducing the risk of natural disasters, coastal fishing help and more. It will begin by high level training sessions, then collection and analysis all the way to becoming its own independent company. The pilot project will be in Nigeria with a local team and team leader supported by the Space Platform team and Planet.com
The goal of the project is to train 100 teams in universities and secondary education institutions to create, prepare and launch their own satellites, furthering Space STEM education throughout developing countries' educational system sharing cutting edge technology to prepare them for working in the Space sector. In cooperation with AmbaSat, the satellites will be delivered in fully-prepared kits to each institution, with complete instructions from assembly to launch and to monitoring each satellite's performance and data collection. The pilot will be in Nigeria and the projects will become independent companies to further distribute the kits and instruct students on their applications.
The project includes an online Hydrogen Renewable Energy course from the Renewable Energy Institute and the constructing of hydrogen fuel cell from Arbor Scientific, a leader in educational science equipment. Piloted in Nigeria, the team will learn the basics and nuances of using green hydrogen energy for planet rovers, settlements and space sciences, as well as uses for the local community to have a less expensive, cleaner and renewable source of energy in daily life. They will research and implement their knowledge for learning institutions and organizations and create their own Green Hydrogen company owned and operated by themselves.
With a great need for hands-on learning in classes in developing nations, the project brings Space STEM workshops directly to the classroom for students. Piloted in Nigeria, top-level educators (academic and professionals) will visit schools with equipment and supplies to bring Space science to life for young learners. As the need for professionals in all Space related fields grows rapidly, the intention is to inspire and excite students to pursue a career in the sector, build their scientific knowledge and enlighten them on the importance of their participation for generations to come.
