NASA sends students to space
CHELSEA Philips and Damian Curran look set to reach for the stars.
The Bundaberg State High School Year 11 duo has been selected to attend the International Space Design Challenge in America.
The students will set off next week, to attend the event hosted by NASA.
School industrial technology and design teacher Keith Holledge said they were selected after the Australian Space Design Challenge.
“They were chosen because of their knowledge of engineering,” he said.
The students will join other Australians to make a team, where they will compete against other countries at the challenge.
The contest puts high school students in the shoes of aerospace industry engineers designing a city in space that will be a home for more than 10,000 people.
“We are given the design challenge from NASA,” Mr Holledge said.
