Teacher off to US Space and Rocket Centre

THRILLED: Geraldene Naidoo, who will be attending the Honeywell Educators at Space Academy in America.

GERALDENE Naidoo, a science teacher at St Martin’s Preparatory School, entered and won a competition and was selected to attend the 2017 Honeywell Educators at Space Academy, which will be held at the US Space and Rocket Centre (USSRC) in Huntsville, Alabama, USA.

During her visit in June, she will be attending lectures at the University of Alabama as well as participating in engineering and design challenges, which include rocket construction and launch, payload operations and many others. She will meet and interact with teachers from all over the world, who will be attending this programme. Geraldene will also attend a graduation ceremony after the completion of the course.

She’s thrilled to be attending such a prestigious programme and will be carrying the St Martin’s flag very high.

On her return, she can’t wait to implement the techniques and impart the knowledge of space and rocketry, to her students.
