World Museum: Destination Space KS3 Workshops!
World Museum has joined forces with the UK and European Space Agencies and the University of Liverpool to run a fantastic education programme celebrating British astronaut Tim Peake’s recent mission at the International Space Station. A key aim of Tim’s six month mission was to inspire a new generation of space scientists through the Destination Space education programme.
Through these unique and stimulating workshops pupils will learn about the wonders of space flight and the talented team of experts that make travelling and living in space possible. The workshops focus on inspiring curiosity and an interest to continue to explore the marvels of modern day science and technology.
The key stage 3 workshop is available on the following dates at 10.15am, 11.30am or 1.15pm: November 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th & 14th
“Join us as we journey to the International Space Station and find out what it takes to do an astronaut’s job while tackling the effect living in space has on the body.
Through a variety of explosive and surprising demonstrations and group activities pupils will work in teams to learn about the science behind space rocket flight, and investigate how technology helps our human body survive the extreme conditions of outer space.
This workshop focuses on some of the key skills needed to be not only an astronaut but a scientist or engineer working in the space industry.
Through problem solving and experiments students get a chance to use their communication, mathematical, English, science and team-working skills to control a robot arm and design a circuit system for the ISS and investigate the best materials to solve a carbon dioxide emergency on board.”
