Mission to the Orbiting Space Laboratory
Mission to the Orbiting Space Laboratory (MOSL) is a daylong space science experience for Year 9 and 10 students. Students work as a team and use all their problem solving skills to successfully complete their Mission. During the day all students act as Astronauts, Mission Controllers and undertake a range of Human Physiology tasks.
Before their mission students undertake fitness assessments in the Research Laboratory to see if they have the right stuff to become an astronaut.
After being cleared for flight, students are briefed on their mission and sent to the orbiting Space Laboratory where they work together to complete a range of scientific experiments.
This mission is conducted under the direction of Mission Control who monitors the systems of the space laboratory and track near Earth objects for potential collision.
The MOSL program is designed to be integrated into the Victorian Secondary School curriculum and complies with VELS guidelines. The program is supported by a pre-mission training program and a debriefing program after your class returns.
Min students per mission: 12
Max students per mission: 24

Book a FREE Engineer for your classroom
The Engineers in Schools Program was established by Engineers Australia, to help students and teachers discover what a career in engineering can offer by bringing professional engineers together with students in the classroom. To ensure students and teachers get the maximum benefit from this program, VSSEC and Engineers Australia, have joined forces to connect passionate engineers and best practice in science education. VSSEC has trained the engineers in strategies for effective science teaching and how to demonstrate the principles of engineering using the pre-mission activities from VSSEC’s Mission to Mars, MOSL, and Robotic Mission to Mars programs. We encourage you to take advantage of this program and book an engineer when you book your mission.
