We were very lucky to be visited by Dr Jaclyn Bell who is a Theoretical Physicist and Mathematician and was a shortlisted candidate on the 2017 BBC programme “Astronaut: Do You Have What It Takes?”. Her professional ambition is to successfully reapply for a place with the European Space Agency, and in the meantime she is the Space & Physics Project Manager at the UK Association for Science & Discovery Centres and a branch Chair of the British Science Association.

She visited our school along with Wigan STEAM and hosted 2 sessions the first one was inspiring the next generation of women in STEM and then how maths and physics can set you on a career path to space. She was truly inspirational and we were very grateful for Wigan STEAM and Jaclyn for giving up their time to inspire our students – and Staff.
