The Space Fellowship recently spoke to Brando Social, an organisation who have teamed up with the British National Space Centre to offer people the chance to tour the centre and meet an astronaut.

The organization has joined forces with Colleges Week 2009, part of the Association of Colleges. The weeklong event take place from the 9 - 15th November and is designed to celebrate the opportunities colleges create for individuals, businesses and Britain.



As part of the Colleges Week celebration, a nationwide competition is being launched called ‘I’m running the show’. The competition is calling on students of all ages to submit a video, up to two minutes, of what they would do if they were ‘running the show’ for a day.

Students are invited to answer the question in any way and as creatively as they’d like, from a simple speech or presentation to a song and dance routine; from an animation to a practical demonstration of the skills you are learning.

Winning students will get the chance to talk tactics with Sven-Göran Eriksson, go behind the scenes of the British Space Industry or learn how a national magazine is put together.

Students can submit their video up until 31st October via the Colleges week website

The Competition is open to all students currently enrolled on a college course at a general or tertiary further education College, sixth form College or specialist College in England.

View the ‘how-to’ video below.

For more information on the Space prize  ”Exploring the UK space industry – chat with an astronaut and take a tour with the British National Space Centre to see space equipment being built” As well as information on other prizes please visit the Colleges week website.

The first round of judging will be based on the number of views so please encourage your friends to watch your video or post a link to it on Facebook or Myspace. To make it easy to find we recommend putting your name and college in the title.

More details on the competition and advice on entering are available for students to download. The Terms and Conditions can also be found Here
