Three Manx students taking part in second Virtual Global Space School

Tue, 27 Jul 2021

Three students from the Isle of Man will link up with peers from around the world to take part in the second Virtual Global Space School.

David Cowin, Anna Cregeen and Winona Reese Dalugdugan won the annual competition arranged by the ManSat Group to take part in the Space School, which runs July 24 until August 8.

ManSat has sponsored Island sixth-form students to travel to Houston since 2000, but because of the Covid pandemic, last year’s event was held online, and this year’s will too, with the students linking up via video.

Jennifer Stone, ManSat’s Chief Technical Officer, said: “This virtual gathering should be a wonderful experience for Anna, Winona, and David, and we are sure they will be excellent representatives of the Isle of Man. 

“We are hopeful Space School will be back to its in-person format in Houston for 2022. We expect to announce the details for our 2022 Space School competition this autumn, which will be open to years 12 and 13.”
