We also had to say goodbye to Mana Vautier, I just think that it is awesome that a man of his status in the world of science (NASA) is interested in us. I aspire to be like him one day.

“Overall, I learnt an awful lot of information and a lot of different methods that I can use while I am back in New Zealand. This has given me a boost in thought about what I can do and need to learn about my own culture and has given me something to think about and has given me a big reality check”

“This trip has changed my perspective on so many things. I love my culture and my land. I am so proud to be Māori. I’ve grown so much and want to immerse myself in my Māoritanga as much as I can.”

“I couldn’t stop smiling. This experience made me want to learn my language and understand my culture. For so long I felt empty in a cultural sense because I didnt feel strongly connected to my culture or have a real sense of identity. Now I feel like I am starting that journey and I am so excited.”

“Today made me realise that there aren’t just engineers and astronauts (and other stereotypical) scientific jobs at NASA. There are graphic artists, designers, photographers, technicians, and financiers. This has shown me possible careers to aspire to. It has really made me want to know more about physics and engineering.”
