ASTRONAUT TIM PEAKE OPENS AIRBUS FOUNDATION STEM CENTRE IN STEVENAGE

We had the pleasure of hosting British Astronaut Tim Peake when he opened the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space in January 2017.

Andrew Stroomer, Head of Airbus in Stevenage said: “We want the Discovery Space to inspire the next generation of engineers, technicians and scientists, and as part of that we will put a focus on targeting disadvantaged communities; bringing experiences and opportunities to those who would not otherwise be engaged.”

We expect to receive around 5,000 school visitors per year and hope that the experience will make a major contribution to inspire the next generation of engineers, technicians and scientists.

The Discovery Space allows young people to develop their learning through an exciting and stimulating visit that is entertaining as well as educational.  It's designed to allow visitors to explore and learn for themselves; complemented by an extensive education programme, designed and delivered by NHC staff.
