CareersFest 2009

by Guest Blogger: SarahH 13. November 2009 16:02

On Monday 9th November the Space Academy held a careers event dedicated to the UK space and aerospace industries.  150 post-16 science and engineering students from all over the East Midlands travelled to the National Space Centre in Leicester for a day of presentations given by leading space research institutes and industry members.  The afternoon session saw the launch of the Space Academy Competition and a showing of We Are Astronomers, the National Space Centre’s newest Space Theatre planetarium show.  Dr Lewis Dartnell from University College London gave the keynote presentation on the subject of Astrobiology and the search for alien life which gave all the participants a new perspective into life on our own planet. 

Planning is now focusing on the Space Academy Year 10 Careers Event taking place on Monday 28th June 2010 and Monday 5th July 2010 to make sure they are as successful as this post-16 event.
