Welcome to my NASA Space Camp Blog.

This Blog is to enable my past, present and future students to share my learning journey at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama, USA, where I will be involved in activities that NASA astronauts and support crews would experience in their training.

Firstly I wish to apologise to my own children, Connor, Curtis, Ciara, Casey and Cameron for not being able to take you with me...., but I will bring back some goodies for you (not the same I know!). I would also like to thank the  Nambour Rotary Club, Education Queensland’s Science and Engineering Education Centre and the University of the Sunshine Coast who has very kindly funded this amazing scholarship.

I am so looking forward to a packed week of excitement. Educator Academy is going to be the ultimate experience, and I can not wait to come back and bring the excitement of science into my past and future classrooms! The next time I launch rockets with my students, I want them to go off with a bang and not just a fizz!

Please feel free to comment or ask me questions throughout my week, remember to include your name, Year level and your school.
