The National Space Academy is delighted that Jocelyn Bell Burnell (pictured, credit: IoP) will be coming along on the 27th of January to speak to year 12 students about her career in science.  These careers events are always free to schools and have other speakers from industry and academia.  If you are interested in bringing your students along to the January event or our year 10 events in the summer, then please do contact us.

In other news, the National Space Academy has formed a partnership with the Ashington Learning Partnership in the north east of England in order to reach more students and teachers in the region.  The Academy has also taken on a new member of management staff, Andy McMurray, to take the lead on Teaching and Learning across the Academy network.  For more news on these new additions, and on other opportunities for schools and teachers please see our latest newsletter here:
