Winter Gardens School on Canvey Island hooked up with The International Space Station where pupils had the opportunity to ask questions to astronauts live on board the ISS.
Writing on the school’s website, Mr Hayes wrote:
I hope you have seen the fantastic article in the local paper about the link with the space station? You may have also heard the pupils on either radio Gateway or BBC Essex. We were honoured by the Mayor attending the event and Rebecca Harris who is our local MP.
Listen below as Danny caught up with the head teacher of the school; Mr C Hayes, a student that took part, the event organisers and NASA.
