Dan talked about camp opportunities for visually impaired students. Lots of wider full opportunities for disadvantaged students.
We then watched a film in the IMAX about future plans for Mars exploration ( narrated by the lovely Patrick Stewart) . After that time for gift shop.
Evaluations and post event questionnaire were next.
Opportunities that space camp has offered came next, then ablative shielding. We had to make a shield to protect an egg from five minutes of welding torch. Our team was successful.

This was followed by graduation rehearsal!
We then listened to ....who wrote 'Rocket Boys' ( later a film based on the book, October Sky, was released) . Another example of what can be achieved if you 'Dream big!'
Graduation followed with awards for teams who had won missions and engineering challenges.
The evening closed with a meal and live band. I can count myself among the few who have danced under Saturn 5!
Have made great links with international teachers. United in our desire to make learning experiences relevant, stimulating, character building and fun, we will share how we take this collaboration forward.
