Indus Space

At Indus Space, we strive to serve and educate youth who are interested within the industry of Space and STEM-focused programs. Our highly skilled staff vie to provide the best service and aims to inspire youth to contribute towards the next generation of the Canadian STEM Workforce. 

Indus Space strives to lead in the aspects of innovation and the creation of change within Canadian Space and STEM networks, allowing for the provision of equal and diverse representation within each level of leadership.​

We deliver high-quality, innovative, and creative STEM programs to our customers. We are committed to decreasing the gap between male and female participants in the STEM field in Canada and beyond. Our goal is also to increase the number of educators prepared to teach integrated STEM topics like space exploration in their learning spaces.

Building a Sustainable Community

Indus Space is working towards the following United Nations (U.N.) Sustainable Development Goals to build a better future for youth.

Our Team

Indus Space was founded in 2018 by Dr. Bhairavi Shankar, a Planetary Scientist and Canadian Space Ambassador. We take pride in providing experiences and opportunities for recent STEM and Business/Entrepreneurial graduates to gain relevant work experience at Indus Space while we grow.

Community Partners

Indus Space was founded to be the bridge for the next generation to inspire them about the value of a STEAM career and the connections of Space Science within STEAM. As a social enterprise venture founded by a woman of colour in STEM, it is important to highlight how individuals with diverse backgrounds can be successful in STEAM, and in the Space sector in particular. The global space community is quite diverse, with more than 100 countries contributing to space initiatives. However, diversity is not currently reflected in various roles such as leadership positions within the Space Sector. 

We work with several community organizations that share a common purpose of providing equitable access to STEM learning and youth programming to their networks and communities. We have partnered and facilitated events with several organizations across the Greater Toronto and Niagara Regions.
