Air Festival

The local Air Force Technical School had an open day on the weekend with flight and aircraft displays.

A lot of student projects were on display too. Some had made fire fighting robotic models, others were explaining hydraulic or other aircraft systems.

Space Camper

My daughter went to Space Camp Turkey a few weeks ago for a three day school trip.

"It was pretty fun - very fun indeed".

She learnt a lot of stuff about space including the Mercury astronauts, the Gemini program, the Apollo missions, space shuttles and mission control.

She went on some simulators.

She also built and flew a model rocket and in one evening session she saw Jupiter and four moons through the telescope.
