Students were able to explore the possibility of working in a future space travel industry during very exciting lessons at Spalding High School.
Year 8 girls were treated to an interactive presentation on the history of space exploration.
As part of the project students were given the chance to make and test their own rockets.
They were also able to see some demonstrations illustrating how rockets are able to overcome gravity... with plenty of bangs.
Parked in front of the school for the two days was a 10 metre rocket from the company Starchaser, which ran the workshops.
The Skybolt rocket has been used as part of the company’s research development, which aims to see manned commercial flights into space become a reality.
Mrs Kim Chappell from the Science department has organised this excellent opportunity for students for the last seven years.
It has always been a very enjoyable experience but also explores the possibility of space tourism in the future, emphasising the many career opportunities available to students thinking of working in this very new field.
