King's College experiment to go to the International Space CentreKimberley STEM College students compete at King's College for their experiment to go to the International Space Station to be carried out by astronaut scientists!
XMA sponsored the 20 students for the week's residential Mission Discovery Summer School run by King's College and ISSET (International Space Schools Educational Trust) as part of our STEM outreach work. The Summer School is supported by top experts from King's and by space professionals including NASA scientists and astronaut scientist Dr Michael Foale CBE.
