To The Moon / Science in Space / DIY Astronomy Star Chart / Rocket – Moonshot!

Join in this special space-themed science day for home-educated learners and their families. Our brilliant science providers take a look at all things space, from how to get there, to space science and the food that astronauts eat! This day is most suitable for ages 6–11, but all ages are welcome.

Please note that the rockets session will now be provided by STEAM as Raptor Aerospace have had to pull out of the Learning Programme.

To The Moon
