During my time at the University of Leicester I was employed as a National Space Academy project scientist. The National Space Academy is a collaborative initiative set up by the Universities of Leicester and Nottingham and the National Space Centre, Leicester. The Space Academy develops and delivers G.C.S.E and A Level revision-focussed masterclasses in the sciences using space science as the context for teaching and inspiration. In 2012, this educational programme was nationalised across England, supported by the UK Space Agency, ESA, STFC and a consortium of space industry. It aims to encourage young people into a career in the space sector. My responsibilities included developing/delivering masterclasses and teacher CPD drawing on the wonderment of environmental and planetary sciences. I also worked with project stakeholders at space careers events.  A selection of the events/activities I supported can be seen in the slideshow.
