Tassie girls breaking glass ceiling on NASA trip

Tasmanian Broadcasters / 02 January 2019

A cohort of Tasmanian all-girl school students will return on the weekend from a once-in-a-lifetime trip to NASA headquarters in the United States.

The two-week trip, part of CASE Space School, saw the girls shake hands with astronauts, take their chances with anti-gravity, and learn the finer details about rockets, shuttles, and missions to the moon.

The group of eighteen girls from Fahan School and St. Michaels Collegiate are breaking barriers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM), giving them the chance to take their experience to the next level.

Grace Biney, currently in Year 7 at St Michaels Collegiate says the experience was something she was really excited for.

“I really wanted to go over here so I could come back with a different mindset, feel a bit more inspired, and [have] a better perception of what I want to do in life,” she said.
