Students set to join the UK’s first ever Space Engineering course today launched into a range of exciting activities at Loughborough College.
Paul Olbison, who is leading the College’e pioneering course, said the aim of the afternoon was to spark design and project ideas ahead of lift off in September.
“It was about having fun, working together, getting to know each other and brain storming some great space engineering projects.
“The last time we all met was at the National Space Centre and this was a chance for some more bonding and for everyone to get a real taste for the exciting work we will be starting soon.”
Loughborough College is delivering the Space Engineering course with the National Space Centre and Dr Sarah Hill, Manager of the National Space Academy based at the Leicester Centre, joined everyone for today’s activities.
Students selected for the Space Engineering course will study A-levels in Physics and Mathematics and a BTEC Level 3 diploma in Engineering.
