“We can’t thank the whole team of Actura enough for the way you treated our daughter like she was your own. Your professionalism with timely communications, all logistics and ensuring our daughters experience was nothing short of amazing was beyond anything we or she could have ever imagined. She loved being with her school buddies and has made some new life long friends with girls from other schools. The programs delivered in all areas of experiences, leadership, exposure to STEM, inspiration and personal development.”
J. Kennaugh - Tara Anglican School for Girls
“My daughter had a wonderful time last December. It was certainly worth the money we spent on . So much more than we expected. She found the group leaders and event instructors caring and helpful. Whole program very exciting and fun. She could not stop talking about it for weeks afterwards. It was nice to see their daily progress on photos and videos via Actura as well. Highly recommend it!”
T. Wickramasinghe - Loreto Kirribilli
“Everything was well organised and communicated. Flynn had a ball and had his eyes opened to very many new experiences. He benefited greatly from the immersing experience and made new friendships.”
J. Tayles - Knox Grammar School
“My Daughter came home with many stories to tell and is still telling them. This trip exceeded my expectations as I was slightly concerned how she would cope being so far away from home and for such a long time, but she loved every minute of it and it has definitely shaped her motivation for what she would like to do in the future with her studies! Other than the obvious learning aspect she has also learnt resilience and independence, made new friends (whom she is continuing to keep in touch with) and a sense of confidence that she did not have prior to the trip.”
P. Nicholls - Presbyterian Ladies' College
“Venice rated the experience 10/10 and her description of the different activities she was involved in sounded very rewarding for someone of her age both from a STEM perspective but also having the confidence to participate in such a program at a relatively young age”
D. Gemmola - International Grammar School
“Thank you to Amy for fielding all our queries and request. Thanks to the two AMAZING group leaders who took the boys on every step of their journey. I would certainly recommend you (and have already) to anyone seeking to send their child on a quest for new learning experiences and one which promotes independence of thought. Well done to all concerned and thank-you!”
C. Wardle - St Michaels
“I appreciated how thorough the organisation of the expidition was and the excellent communication with parents throughout the whole experience.”
N. Brookes - International Grammar School

"This experience has been life changing for me. It helped me to realise my goals and guided me by giving me the knowledge and support to allow me to take those steps so I can achieve my goals... It gave me an incredible learning experience to learn outside the classroom and develop practical skills, Not only did I feel very welcomed and an accepted part of both my groups but I also made new friends who i will continue to stay in touch with when the trip ends... I had such a great experience in america and got a taste of the culture too.I gained knowledge on my group , its members, myself and space. I learnt about NASA and the different occupations it is looking for as well as extended my knowledge about past space missions such as Gemini and Apollo. I definitely learned a lot in a short period of time without realising it it as it was not at all a classroom learning environment."
H. Nicholas - Stella Maris College
"I learnt a lot. Not just about space and rockets but also about team, socialising, being organised and being nice and support for each other. It was a challenging journey for me because this was my first time overseas without my family but by not being with them, i learnt how to face the challenge and how to fix them by myself. I learnt lots about space and rockets by listening to amazing presentations from amazing engineers, astronauts and crew trainers. Also the multi axis trainer was amazing. Space shot, Bravo mission and many more. I am very lucky to be apart of these experiences that i can't do in my normal life outside of space camp."
M. Kim - Presbyterian Ladies' College
"The Space School was one of the best trips I have ever gone on and recommend to anyone interested in STEM. I have made incredible memories and met people I will never forget. I have learnt so much, enhancing my knowledge of STEM and how to be successful. I have also learnt about the American culture and the future for space exploration. This trip has really inspired me to try my hardest in everything I do to achieve my dreams and goals. The GMs and group members made this experience 10x better and I wouldn't have enjoyed as much without them."
S. Wallace - Ravenswood School for Girls
"I absolutely loved this experience and i have gained so many things from this experience. This including friendships, Skills and opportunities. I didn't realise the amount of amazing things we have done on this trip and i am so thankful for this. Not only have i learnt about Newton's laws, How to build a rocket, astronomy, the process and development of space light and parts of a shark I have learnt other things I didn't think i would learn on this trip this including, good habits, good communication skills and new friendships. Never did i think i would gain these things from this experience. Knowledge was not just a major part of this trip but communication and teamwork as well."
B. Cunningham - Monte Sant' Angelo Mercy College
"My experience at Space School was brilliant...This trip also taught me almost complete Independence - to make my own hard decisions being organised, e.c.t I also became more resilient... I learnt to bounce back and not let it get me down for too long. Overall, this trip taught me a lot more than just Space and STEM (even though that was amazing), it also taught me some essential life skills that I am very grateful for.
K. Zhang - Tara Anglican School for Girls
"I had an excellent experience. I made new friends and strengthened old friendships, met amazing people and had so much fun in all of the activities.The leaders (especially Chris) were so supportive and encouraging. I've learned not just about the wonders of space exploration but I've also learned about how to approach any challenging situations with a positive attitude. I have applied these skills already in this camp which allowed me to try a variety of new activities. My Huntsville leaders were also amazing and fun."
L. Tucker - Kambala School
"From the beginning to the end, there were fun activities, amazing people and supportive elders. All of the experiences made you realize how lucky we are to be on this trip. Some of these opportunities are once in a life time and you must take these opportunities with both hands and try your hardest. I have learned never to give up on your dreams and must work hard no matter what others say. Anything is possible no matter how hard your dream may be. We may think we have it all but then there is always more to learn."
M. Olesen - Knox Grammar School
"I went to Houston expecting an exciting trip, but what i got exceeded every expectation I had. The GMs and crew trainers in Huntsville and Houston were helpful and supportive, providing a safe, enthusiastic environment in which to learn. I loved every minute of my trip and didn't want to leave when it was time to go. I learned about the mercury, Gemini, Apollo and STS program as well as the inter-nation co-operation needed to build the ISS. I got to experience working aboard the ISS and orbiter as well as take a sneak peak into the amazing work people do at NASA's mission control. I was able to fully appreciate the determination and persistence of people like Wernher von Braun who turned a thousand old dream in to reality and most importantly i learned the true meaning of what it means to be apart of the space program. 'Today's dreams are tomorrow's reality'"
J. Cummins - Presbyterian Ladies' College
"Overall, Space school has been an amazing experience. I have learnt so many new things. This includes the opportunities in the space industry and the different positions and roles in the control center i specifically learn about the position of "paycom" and its importance. I also learnt a lot about the different Space programs and their importance. I also made lots of friends and have honestly had a awesome time. All the teachers and instructors were very nice. I would differently go again. It has differently been an amazing unforgettable time."
G. Blomfield - Merdien - Anglican School for Girls
