Groups can explore over 250 interactive exhibits and take part in a 30 minute workshop!
Under 8s: Destination Space
This interactive, show-style workshop will introduce young children to space travel, the ISS and the work of astronaut Tim Peake. We’ll listen to video advice from mission control, launch a mini rocket and through a series of simple challenges test various materials for use in space. To finish children will simulate a spacewalk, fixing a problem on the space station before returning to earth with a bump!
8+ years: Moon Adventure
In this interactive workshop we celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo moon landings. Following the announcement from NASA that missions to the moon will be taking place again within the next 5 years, this session explores the space missions that travelled around the moon and then successfully landed on the surface of the moon for the first time. Come and design a research moon buggy to get back to the landing module on the lunar landscape and discover a lot more about the Apollo missions along the way!
