BLAST OFF at Leicester’s Space Park

[29/11/2021 | No comment]

Last week I had one of my favourite ever visits, to Space Park Leicester where I met with Professor Suzie Imber who ran a workshop teaching pupils from Queensmead Academy in Braunstone about physics with rocket experiments.

The space sector has huge potential to create high skill, high quality jobs in the UK, and the Space Park is bringing together the University of Leicester’s world leading research with manufacturing & business to harness this. Through workshops like the one I saw last week; the Space Park is inspiring young people to follow a path into a science career, and to gain the skills needed to fulfil this potential.

I will continue to do all that I can to support the Space Park and all the brilliant work they are doing.
