Dear Parents/Guardians of pupils in the UK Space Design Club,
The Wychwood UK Space Design Club is competing in the UK Space Design competition regional heats on Saturday 10th November at Oxford University. The day will run between 8.30am and around 8.30pm and will involve the team working intensely on a design for a Space colony and then presenting it. Judging will then take place for a space in the UK final. This is a very exciting event for us as we have a very strong team this year.
Pupils will need to bring some food (packed lunch) and water with them to sustain them during the day. The competition has said that there will be pizza available at dinner time. Girls may also wish to bring an internet enabled device such as a laptop, ipad, tablet or phone to work on during the day and they must be responsible for this themselves throughout the day.
Pupils can either meet me at school at 7.50am to walk to the Andrew Wiles building, or meet us directly there at 8.20am if they are travelling straight from home to the competition if that is more convenient.
The competition will likely finish very late in the day and so girls will need to be collected at the end of the competition from the Andrew Wiles building. Please complete the reply slip opposite for your daughter to participate in this event.
