This was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life and I’m so glad I got to meet some incredibly inspirational people.
Mission Discovery has created the perfect situation to motivate, educate and connect with many young people.
Mission Discovery is an excellent opportunity for young people, I was impressed with the rapid progress in the young people's performance. The sessions effectively captures the interest and imagination of the students.
The International Space School Education Trust has done an excellent job in putting together such an inspiring programme.

Novel ways in which we can engage and stimulate the interest of school children in science are much needed. Mission Discovery utilises the various aspects of space and manned space flight to do just this. However, what surprised me was the number of different levels at which the students had engaged with Mission Discovery. The ingenuity and thought that had gone into their proposed research projects was quite remarkable. The students had clearly bonded well in their different teams, gained real confidence and seemed to have thoroughly enjoyed the week.
I really wish there had been a program like this for me to attend when I was in high school!
Awesome. I cannot stress how special the whole package was to the seven students from The Catholic High School, Chester. They formed lasting friendships and were truly inspired by the staff from NASA
Over the years, I have been involved in many, many space camps, seminars, science fairs, etc around the subject of space flight. Mission Discovery was, by far, the most comprehensive, interesting, and educational endeavour that I have been involved with. For the staff and most of all, the students, it was a wonderful week that I greatly enjoyed.
The week was simply incredible, I learnt a lot whilst enjoying it at the same time. Thank you to everyone involved.
Working with all the experts was so inspirational and such a unique experience - nothing else even comes close.
Great time with amazing people!
This for me has been a life defining moment for me and has helped me massively
I would just like to thank you for such a brilliant experience. I feel that the mission discovery summer school has been one of my dreams come true, to be able to spend a week with real astronauts and sit down and talk with them over dinner. This is a memorable part of my life that I will never forget and will cherish forever.
The week was simply incredible, i learnt a lot. Thank you to everyone involved.
It was an amazing experience, it gave me an insight, direction, and assurance of what I want to do n the future. Everyone was really friendly and helpful, and I'm so glad that I get to meet a lot of mazing people.
Thank you for the week as a whole, I feel as though it taught me a lot; I would love to do it gain.
I extremely enjoyed my time at Mission Discovery. From making friends with like-minded people to watching presentations from the astronauts. I would definitely recommend it to others
It was such an amazing experience, I learnt how to work well in a team, improve my leadership kills and presentation skills and overall I had a really enjoyable week.
Absolutely AMAZING - learnt so much! Working with all the experts was so inspirational and such a unique experience - nothing else even comes close to last week :) THANK YOU !!
The course was brilliant, the mixture of life skills and science was spot on.
Mission Discovery was an amazing week which taught me more about space and the industry.
I learnt so much from the week, it taught me communication and presentation skills, as well as getting over that step of doing something by myself, and not needing that support of someone else. I also took in so much knowledge from the team too though =) Thank you for the opportunity.
A great time with amazing people!
There were so many fascinating things to absorb
The week has been an impact of full knowledge and enjoyment throughout the course and I have also discovered many new and relevant skills that will be very helpful for me in the future throughout my educational period and work period.
It was an incredible experience, I loved working in my team and now I want to be involved in space exploration.
I really enjoyed the summer school experience and I definitely feel that it's made me more confident and it gave me a better idea of what I wanted to be doing in the future.
I thoroughly enjoyed the week, especially the challenge of coming up with an experiment.
The best part of the week was working with lots of new people and being able to share the experience with all of the Mission Discovery team.
Really appreciated the fact we met real astronauts and my teamwork skills have improved since I have done the project.
Great, I really enjoyed it. I have learned something new everyday.
This for me has been a life defining moment for me and has helped me massively.
