As a committed ambassador for STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) education, Josh has been actively using his position as a Mars One candidate to visit schools all over the world since 2013. Covering the full gambit of challenges facing a one-way mission to Mars – from the complexities of space engineering, growing food on Mars, to personal ethical discussions – no student question is off-limits during Josh’s school incursions.

Josh is also a regular speaker for the Halogen foundation – speaking at primary and secondary student events about leadership, personal values and integrity with audiences of over 3,500 students. Born in a country without a space agency, his drive to speak to students comes from a deep-seated desire to create a future where no parent ever needs to tell their child they can’t explore space because of what part of Earth they were born on.

If you’re interested in booking Josh to speak at your school or student event, please get in touch!
