BBC Astronauts star Dr Suzie Imber visit to Truro High
We are delighted to announce that this January we will be playing host to a top space scientist and star of BBC 2’s ‘Astronauts: Do you have what it takes?’. Dr Suzie Imber will be inspiring the next generation of stargazers as she spends the day leading hands-on workshops and talks on space science at Truro High. The space scientist will also talk about the incredible journey that led her to win the BBC’s search to find the best candidate to send to outer space.
Dr Imber, who is an associate professor in space physics at Leicester University, triumphed over 11 other contestants to win the BBC’s ‘Astronauts: Do you have what it takes?’ programme. She was put through a series of gruelling tests by former astronaut Chris Hadfield, who was so impressed by her performance that he has formally recommended her to join the European Space Agency.
This star-studded day will involve Truro High School pupils of all ages as well as schoolchildren from across the county.
In the evening, staff, governors, parents and friends are warmly invited to join us in the Piran Theatre for a special lecture with Dr Imber as she discusses her giant leap towards becoming an astronaut. Please email our Head of STEM Mr Jon Dean on firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat.
The lecture will commence at 7pm. We look forward to seeing you there.
