TWENTY-eight St Norbert College students are in for an experience of a lifetime when they visit the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) later this month. The trip is part of a 16-day science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) tour in the US organised by the Queens Park college.

Students will learn about space history, undergo a variety of astronaut training and take part in simulated space missions during their five days at NASA’s Advanced Space Academy. Mathematics head Bridget Murphy said preparation for the trip began about three years ago.
