VSSEC Welcomes First International Students for Mission to Mars
The VSSEC Mission to Mars program has attracted students from all around Australia and now the first group of international students have suited up and conducted their own mission. The students from Singapore spent three days in Melbourne working with students from Strathmore Secondary College, suiting up for a mission as an astronaut, directing astronauts from Mission Control and analysing samples in the laboratory.
The tour was co-ordinated by SpeedEd www.speedb.com/, an education consultancy in Singapore that offers exciting and thought provoking programs for students. During the three day study visit the students were emerced in a science rich experience, challenged to solve problems as a team, and made new friends in Australia.
