Sixth formers could win trip to Houston

A Manx company is offering local sixth form students a chance to win a scholarship to NASA United Space School.

ManSat Group has been running its scholarship programme for the summer school in Houston since 2000.

The Satellite firm is asking those in Year 12 at the Island's high schools and King William's College to answer three essay questions, with the best responses earning a spot at the two-week school next summer.

35 students from the Island have attended the NASA program since ManSat launched the scholarship.

Those interested in entering can get more details from ManSat's website, or their Head of Sixth Form.
