CAPTION: Students in the U.K. from Hawarden High School, Sealand; Priory Witham Academy, Lincoln; and Downham Market Academy, near RAF Marham set off for Space Camp, at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center® in Huntsville to start a week of amazing hands-on learning experience.

 

Space Camp® is an experience-based learning programme aimed at increasing youth interest in space science. Thousands of students and teachers from more than 60 countries have participated in the programme since it started in 1982. It encourages and supports students and teachers from primary through to secondary school to focus on education that advances excellence in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) courses.

This marks the tenth year that the Northrop Grumman Foundation has funded Space Camp® sponsorships and the fourth year that U.K. students and teachers have been given the opportunity to participate in the programme.
