Students Natalie Yeap and Archie Brown were chosen to attend the week long trip, and both students were left in awe at some of the sights and experiences they had.
Natalie said: “NASA’s first female and Hispanic flight director, Ginger Kerrick gave an inspiring and insightful talk about her journey towards her senior role, recounting her experiences, struggles and triumphs during her long, extraordinary career.
“A particularly compelling story was the challenges she faced in her pursuit of studying physics, being obstructed by a teacher due to his misogynistic views.
“Ginger also explained her vision for the future of manned spaceflight, her transition to working with a company in the space industry and the skills needed to work as flight director.
“She emphasised the importance of emotional intelligence, communication and leadership strength.
“The NASA trip was a fantastic experience and really opened our eyes to the opportunities available to us.”
