Upper Secondary Students Visit Space Inspirium in Sri Racha

Friday, July 12, 2019

The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) today published images from Hyabusa-2, a probe designed to explore the Ryugu asteroid. Three Year 11 students from Assumption College English Program were discussing this on their journey to the Space Inspirium in Sri Racha, as part of the Year 10-12 field trip. Students were later delighted to find, inside the Space Inspirium, a display devoted to JAXA and its various explorations of the solar system.

Students’ imaginations were stimulated by a 3D multimedia presentation that outlined humanity’s current forays into space, the possible colonisation of Mars, and the search for life on other planets. They had just heard a presentation regarding the history of our understanding of the universe before stepping into a replica of a space capsule that detailed life aboard the International Space Station.

Students also learnt about Geographic Information Systems and Remote Sensing, particularly as they relate to engineering in ‘Thai Future Cities’, where STEM skills are highly desirable.

Afterward, some of our students experienced being strapped into a gyrosphere, which simulates the pitch, yaw, and roll of aerospace vehicles, and is part of orientation for astronauts. Meanwhile, other students experienced navigating a land vehicle via virtual reality. They not only wore VR goggles but were strapped into a seat inside a dedicated cubicle that closely mimicked the real thing.

Finally, students were still talking about their experiences during lunch at J Park, where most decided to eat delicious Japanese food.
