The first day in Florida was an absolutely fantastic day for staff and students. The students day began with an early breakfast and transfer to Universal, for a behind the scenes tour. The staff at Universal were very impressed and stated that our girls were one of the best groups that they had ever had, saying specifically that they were extremely impressed with their enthusiasm and thirst for knowledge and adventure.

Onwards to NASA training!

Our girls' learnt about the logistics of a launch (history etc) and astronaut necessities like using the facilities and eating, with all groups launching a mission in the discovery simulator.

The early start of 6:30am was well worth it. The group left for NASA training at 7am and were climbing the anti-gravity wall and spinning on the multi-axis trainer by 10:30am. The girls were a credit to the academy and successfully landed their shuttles during mission control.

After leaving the centre they headed to the beach and while the teachers relaxed, the girls had fun in the waves.

The evening was simply magical as the group watched an NBA basketball game. Orlando Magic smashed the San Antonio Spurs out of the park and Harris Bromley made the jumbotron.

The group got to visit the Kennedy Space Centre, with a cinematic experience about the History of Space travel and NASA...only for the screen to left and reveal Atlantis, a space shuttle that went on 33 return trips to space.

Our girls spent some time exploring the centre and enjoyed experiencing the launch simulator. Then followed a lunch with Jon McBride, where the girls were able to ask questions about his experiences in space

Soon after, the group headed off to the launch sites to learn more about space travel and the incredible work of NASA staff. A truly priceless and humbling experience. To stand beneath Saturn 5 was unbelievable!

The last day of adventures had the group wrap up warm for an early (and breezy) airboat ride at the Alligator Sanctuary, Boggy Creek.

Students got to meet a lady from the local tribe and sang her song of friendship before heading off for some final indulgence at the Premium Outlet .... something the teachers definitely enjoyed on their final afternoon.

It was a fantastic week and all were very sad that it was over.

The girls were a credit to all, on what has been an exceptional trip!
