About Us

Aerospace and aviation are part of daily life.  Our goal is to connect all ages and abilities with direct access to Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM) projects and design challenges to investigate how and why things fly. It’s Rocket Science is extraordinarily unique, making the understanding of flight, rocketry and space technology engaging and achievable for everyone.

Our tailored STEM innovation programs cater for school incursions, OSHC and Vacation Care, community groups and parties, offering the rare opportunity to be immersed in spectacular and safe learning experiences!

Our experiment-based programs are specifically designed to reinforce STEM subjects and directly aligned to the Australian Curriculum (ACARA), delivering pathways for STEM learning, innovation and entrepreneurial skills from early childhood in lesser known areas of learning.

The It’s Rocket Science Adventures team are passionate and qualified industry specialists bringing unique experiences direct to the classroom, empowering young learners with real-world applications in space sciences, future problem solving and engineering innovations. We are motivated to ignite curiosity, enhance creativity and promote STEM skills ready to meet future workforce needs.

Cran Middlecoat

Cran Middlecoat

Founder & Aerospace Geek

Born in Brisbane, Cran has had a lifelong obsession with all things aerospace. Being a pilot since the age of 16, his career has taken him from flying clinic runs for the Royal Flying Doctor Service in outback Australia, to being qualified on multiple commercial jet airliner types. Cran currently flies the Boeing 787 Dreamliner with one of Australia’s leading international airlines.

Cran is also a qualified Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) controller, being one of the first in Australia to be granted Chief Pilot approval by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority.  This position involved overseeing and facilitating a basic drone controllers training program for Brisbane high school students.

Another keen interest shared jointly with his sons, is rocketry. During Australia’s first International Model Rocketry meet in 2015, Cran witnessed how engaging rocketry was for children of all ages and developed It’s Rocket Science Adventures to promote the significant educational benefits that the science of rocketry and flight could offer all school students across multiple subjects.  With his love of public speaking and passion for aero-science, it is Cran’s desire to inspire the aerospace professionals of tomorrow.
