TLES students show teachers how to cook up a comet!

On Monday two students from TLES travelled to the SSAT (The Schools Network) conference in London to give a presentation about what we have been up to as an SSAT Leading Space School.

The students selected have shown an excellent level of commitment to their studies in both Science and Astronomy and prepared a presentation which included teaching the attendees how to make a comet in the classroom!

Later in the afternoon the students watched National Space Academy director Anu Ojha give a fascinating presentation about the physics of high altitude sky diving. Vaughan ended up on stage again demonstrating what it is like to wear a high altitude pressure suit!
