      Nope not always, I didn’t even do engineering for the Junior, Leaving or college. I focused on maths mostly. But I wanted to get involved with space missions. I just wasn’t sure in what way. After I spent the summer at NASA, I decided I was going to try and be one of the people who makes the spacecraft.

      Don’t worry if you choose the wrong subjects now, you can make it work if you really want to.
