Freya MacDonald and Abbie Wilson report on the day:
On Friday, we attended the ISSET NASA workshop at Ayrshire College. We got to build a rocket and experiment with gravity. We worked in a team with Marr students and two girls from Stewarton Academy and competed against the rest of the groups. We won the team challenge award since our rocket went the furthest (full length of the football pitch).
This award was presented to us by astronaut Michael Foale who has been a NASA astronaut for 27 years and is now an International Space Station Commander.
Overall we found the day interesting and enjoyable. We learned lots of information that we can use in everyday life. We also used our teamworking skills which we developed through the day.
