igniting the spark
Students from schools across Northamptonshire have taken a voyage of discovery to unearth the secrets of the solar system and find out more about the science of space.

A series of space-age workshops were held at Northampton College, with pupils from Thomas Becket Catholic School, Caroline Chisholm School and Kettering Science Academy taking part in the sessions – run by The National Space Academy.

The ‘Igniting The Spark’ sessions, which saw students learn how to build a telescope, build model comets using dry ice, launch their own compressed air rocket and discover what lifeforms need to survive in space, were held throughout the day on Friday, February 23.

A carefully crafted social media campaign to promote a classic sandwich has landed a group of Northampton College students £500 in Amazon vouchers.

Level Three business students Hannah Ferrin, Callum Buck, Verity Rust and Millicent Wincott teamed up to produce a fresh, low fat, take on the classic bacon, lettuce and tomato sandwich, which saw them reach the regional finals of a competition to create a new product for High Street fast food giant Subway.

Their campaign to ‘bring back the BLT’ and see their healthy handcrafted sandwich sold in Subway stores across the region was an overall runner-up but they were named winners of the award for ‘Best Social Media Campaign’.
