Carol Vorderman has taken to social media to share a rare snap with her daughter Katie King.
This stunning throwback photo was taken when they first travelled together to America.
Carol and her scientist-daughter interviewed NASA’s former deputy director Vanessa Wyche, Colleen Hartman, former Director NASA Goddard Space Flight Center and Grier Wilt, astronaut trainer.
On Thursday, they appeared on BBC’s Morning Live to spotlight the inspiring women involved in the US space program.
Vanessa mentioned that 40% of Nasa staff now are women. It is the goal to have the first woman on the Moon by 2024.
Grier then showed her how astronauts train in a pool which recreates the feeling of floating through space.
Carol expressed her pride in Cameron’s accomplishments last week, after he beat ‘endless bullying’ and received his masters.
Carol celebrated her son’s accomplishments on Twitter with a series posts that explained his special education experiences.
She shared with her social media followers about her son’s special education needs and how he exceeded her expectations.
In the first post she shared two childhood snaps of Cameron who is now 24, before sharing his early schooling days.
She said: “My son Cameron was a happy toddler.
“Before and after he started school it became clear that he had severe special educational needs.
“No school would accept him. I was going to give up work to teach him but even I couldn’t teach a child with his severe needs.”
She then said in a video: “He struggled, and when I say struggled, it was off the scale. I had to find him a special school, if you like.”
Carol said that despite Cameron being very bright, his learning abilities were ‘different to normal’ and he required extra help.
She posted another collection of photos where she called her son ‘The Master’ where she said: “It’s hard for these kids. They get bullied and told they’re ‘odd’ when really they have a superpower, they see the world a different way.”
She posted a photo of a cake that she had made for her son where she captioned it: “Cam stuck with it, through endless bullying, changed school, developed strategies to learn.
“He got a first class honours degree in animation, and now he has just received his masters degree in animation and video effects.
“I could not be more proud of him and I love him to bits, but I’m also a very proud mum because I know just how much he struggled to get there.”
