Activity 1 – Stardome from Keele University looking at space discovery

Activity 2 – Rockets – pupils will be designing and testing rockets which they will launch in the playground (weather permitting)

Activity 3 – Programming a Luna robot – pupils will be using Lego Mindstorms to plan a route across a Luna surface.

Activity 4 – Story telling – pupils will engage in a story telling session and then either create a poem based on a space travel or send a post card from space.
