Sarah Poulter (right) recently attended the USA Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama in the July holidays thanks to the Royal Society Talented Students' Travel Scholarship.
Attending the event gave Sarah the opportunity to experience the work involved with space exploration. During mission simulations Sarah experienced what it's like to be a Mission Specialist on a Space Shuttle, work in Mission Control and even act as Chief Medical Officer on the Ouranos Space Station. There were also a number of engineering challenges where students worked together creatively. Sarah says "It was an amazing experience to be surrounded by people so passionate about Science and Technology".
