We have received news of an exciting summer residential STEM opportunity for pupils in Year 8 or Year 9.  Space Camp 2019 is a four night residential STEM experience that is being held near Oswestry in Shropshire between Monday 12th and Friday 16th August. During the residential pupils will work in team towards their own High Altitude Balloon launch and retrieval, involving predictions, payload build, helium research and footage video shows.  Throughout the week there will also be specialist workshops by STEM Ambassadors, including Dr Jackie Bell form the TV series 'So You Want To Be An Astronaut'.

This event, which is organised by the RAF, is free of change and will feature dormitory boarding accommodation and is fully catered throughout. All that it requires is for parents to drop off on the 12th and collect on the 16th.
