“It’s not Rocket Science! Oh wait… Yes it is!”
It gives us great pleasure to invite you and your students to a lecture by Spacecraft Systems Engineer and STEMDCU (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education advocate, Amber Gell.
The lecture will take place in the Helix, DCU at 11am on Tuesday, 5th April.
Abstract for talk:
Have you ever looked up at the sky on a dark starry night and wondered what it would be like to go out there and explore the cosmos? Perhaps take that next giant leap for human kind? Well, although it may seem like all the fun stuff happens in space, there are actually really exciting opportunities in the space industry for those here on Earth, supporting the Astronauts and Robotic Space Missions.
