Through this unique and stimulating session pupils will learn about the wonders of space flight and the talented team of experts that make travelling and living in space possible. The session focuses on inspiring curiosity and an interest to continue to explore the marvels of modern day science and technology.
Come and join us on an interactive adventure travelling into space to visit the International Space Station. We will meet some space scientists and get their expert help to prepare us for travelling and living in space, then we’ll launch a rocket (with a big bang!) and dock at the International Space Station.
Once on board experience what life in orbit is like through a series of challenges; how do astronauts move in zero gravity, where do they get fresh water from, and how do they go to the toilet in space?
Suddenly there is an emergency! We must test and select equipment to go on a space walk and fix the problem. Once repaired we take in the amazing view of planet Earth, then we strap ourselves in ready for the journey home.
Please arrive on time for your workshop or we may not be able to run it for you. Please share these notes with your adult helpers before your visit. This will help them to support your pupils have a successful and enjoyable day.
Through participating in this session students are encouraged to think about democracy, individual liberty and tolerance.
