On Monday 10th March members of the MARSBalloon team hosted a stand at the Ambitions+ careers event which was attended by around 2000 Year 12 students. Over the day we talked to many visitors at our stand about the many different careers in the UK Space industry and their entry requirements. They also had the chance to try out the new version of our “build a space mission” game which challenges students to make critical design decisions for missions to various different planets and moons in the Solar system.
We always enjoy talking to students about our careers as space engineers and will hopefully be working with many of them in the future!
Teachers in the Bristol area can find out more about the “Ambitions” events on the official website.
