Virtual Global Space School scholars presented with certificates

Wed, 22 Sep 2021

Three students from the Isle of Man were challenged to plan a mission to an asteroid as part of this summer’s Virtual Global Space School.

David Cowin, Anna Cregeen and Winona Reese Dalugdugan won scholarships from the ManSat Group to take part in this year’s Space School, which is run by the Foundation for International Space Education (FISE).

The students were this week presented with certificates marking their achievement by Education Minister Dr Alex Allinson.

ManSat has been awarding the scholarships for 21 years, and recipients would normally spend two weeks at the Space School in Houston, USA, working alongside peers from more than 20 countries, with support from NASA astronauts, engineers and scientists. However, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant the event has had to be held online for the last two years.
