Mission Discovery

The space dust has now settled on Ayrshire’s first ever Mission Discovery programme and what an event it was.

200 Ayrshire secondary school pupils and college students came together for the week-long space school, where they worked in teams to create space experiments.

Under the guidance of the International Space School Educational Trust (ISSET) team that included former NASA astronaut Michael Foale CBE, they challenged themselves to think creatively and work as part of a cohesive team.

We are excited to announce the release of dates for Mission Discovery 2017 which will be taking place between 19-23rd of June. Following the success of previous years, the programme will be filled with science projects, competitions and inspiring industry speakers to bring visitors closer to space-knowledge.

More details about the event will be revealed soon, so keep an eye on the Ayrshire College website!
