Grade 8 Boarders Outing

On 16 September, the Grade 8 boarders spent an exciting evening at the University of Pretoria where they met real-life NASA astronaut, Dr Don Thomas. Dr Thomas spoke about working and living in space, sharing details of the training, launch day, and landing as well as how to eat, drink, wash and even go to the bathroom on a spacecraft! Our young ladies learned that science, technology, engineering and mathematics can be exciting and lead to amazing adventures and were encouraged by the details of NASA's future plans to visit Mars and various asteroids. As always, our young ladies impressed us with their insightful questions and were complemented on their excellent behaviour.
