Derry pupils go cosmic!

Boys and girls from local primary schools have just competed in this year's WELB/Sentinus Science and Technology Challenge Final.

Themed in line with the International Year of Astronomy, pupils were told that astronauts had been working hard to repair some solar panels on the International Space Station, one of which had become stranded outside the craft.

The challenge in this year’s final was to design and construct a space craft with doors which can open and close remotely to allow the stranded astronaut to enter.
