NASA Trip for Students
Tech City College is proud to have sponsored two of their students to go to NASA in Houston, Texas and Cape Canaveral, Florida. After in-depth interviews and projects, the most suitable candidates from Tech City College were Nathan and Alex who were lost for words after winning this project. Alex added "I had no idea I was going to win this" and seems to be over the moon with his achievement.
Running up to the trip, the students collaborated with their teachers to organise a fundraising event. The theme was based around space with relevant movies and refreshments provided. They also created further awareness through web and social media posts as well as internal advertising through posters, leaflets and e-mail. Not only was this project taught them fantastic presentation and preparation skills, it also brought to light how to fund-raise, hold events and market a brand which is key for everyone and everything in this modern age.
"I could not be happier for Alex and Nathan and wish them the best for the journey ahead. They are doing a remarkable job leading up to their trip with all the support they need from the staff of Tech City College. They are the future of tomorrow and I couldn't be happier to know they are the next generation of today's world" - Nasrin Farahani, Head Teacher of Tech City College.
The experience and challenges that these students endured whilst visiting NASA put them in great footing for their future careers. It is a dream for millions of students, and became a reality for Alex and Nathan. Watch this space for the next two students who will be going to NASA later this year...
