Futures Trust Schools Meet A British Astronaut!
On 13th October, Dr Michael Foale, Britains's first astronaut in space visited the trust and met students from each of its schools. Dr Foale met pupils from our primary schools in the morning and our secondary schools in the afternoon and each pupil received a photograph of themselves with Dr Foale as a special momento.
Our learners head about Dr Foale's eight missions into space which included the Mir Space Station and the International Space Station. He spoke about how his love and persuit of science had enabled him to realise his dream of becoming an astronaut and how learning to speak other languages had ensured he was included in the Russian Space Program.
