Space to Learn Workshops

On Friday 21st June, 60 Year 8 and 9 students took part in space workshops run by Lead educator Hayley Smith from the National Space Academy. Focussing on propulsion and the challenges of surviving in Space, one class made a table hovercraft to investigate momentum whilst the other challenged marshmallow astronauts to withstand changes in pressure and set off air filled rockets in the Quad. Everyone enjoyed the Woosh bottle and seeing pieces of the Vesta asteroid.

It was a fun and fascinating morning with lots of chances to find out about different jobs involving Space, ask questions and see how the science we learn in the classroom really does open up the whole universe to us!
