The Australian Space Agency estimates that our space industry will create over 20,000 new degree-heavy jobs by 2030, but who is going to fill them? Robinson Aerospace Systems (RAS) was founded in April 2022, with the mission of inspiring students to pursue careers in Australia's rapidly growing space industry. RAS will assist in filling these jobs by igniting passion in secondary school students and educating them on space technology and career opportunities.
RAS is focused on providing exciting products for students, ensuring our products stand out against other 'boring' educational tools. This ensures students will enjoy using the kit, furthering the chances of students becoming inspired to pursue a career in Australia's space industry.
Founder and Director
Throughout secondary school, I grew an enormous passion for space technology and electronic engineering. Like many people, videos of SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket landing on a ship in the ocean ignited my passion for space, inspiring me to pursue a career in Australia's space industry.
Rather than waiting to complete secondary school, complete University and slowly work my way into the space industry as an engineer somewhere in 2026, I took matters into my own hands. I developed a 'guided' model rocket while I was in year 11, followed by a prototype CubeSat in year 12. In 2022, I started studying Electrical and Mechatronic Engineering at UniSA, before taking 12 months leave from University to focus on RAS.
