Out of world experience for Manx students

ManSat space scholarship

There's an out of this world experience on offer for Manx students who have their gaze firmly set on the stars.

Every year the Manx satellite company ManSat along with the Department of Education gives up to three Island sixth formers the chance to go to space school.

The winners will spend two weeks during the summer in Houston, Texas.

Former St Ninian's pupil Dr Jennifer Stone won the very first scholarship back in 2000.

She says it was quite literally a life changing opportunity which led to her working in the space industry.

The deadline for applications is January 9th - for more information email information@mansat.com
