Event Name:  World Space Week School Workshops
Event Description:  Our inspirational World Space Week School Workshops exist in a range of formats, differentiated for age and ability - and are designed to build on pupils' existing knowledge, enhance progression and boost pupil motivation in science. They are available both during World Space Week and are delivered on site in your school. For teachers, they provide an opportunity to experience some creative, inspiring and cross-curricular approaches to teaching the topic of Space, many of which require minimal resources and can be shared with colleagues and implemented into science lessons the very next day. The World Without a Moon - Answering one of science's greatest "what ifs" ... Since its creation over four billion years ago, the moon has been locked into the Earth's embrace. But it certainly makes itself felt - in ways uncovered by this intriguing, drama-based workshop. After a quick game exposing some unforgettable Moon Facts, participants work in groups to bring to life some of the moon's impacts - by imagining how different (and possibly non-existent) a number of aspects of life would be without it. Suitable For: up to 30 pupils at a time, KS1 - KS4 (and beyond!) Exploring (according to age): history, characteristics and composition of the moon; the moon and tidal behaviour; the moon and weather; the moon and evolution. Time Travel Tourists - the Apollo Adventurers - Celebrating 50 years since the first humans walked on the moon It was in July 1969 that Neil Armstrong stepped onto the lunar landscape and uttered the famous words, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." Since then, only another eleven astronauts have walked on the moon - and none since 1972. This unique programme, though, gives your pupils an opportunity to "meet" and work with one of the people behind Apollo 11 - Margaret Hamilton (who led the team designing the mission's software) or Astronaut Armstrong himself. Your Tourist will be more than happy to meet the school at an assembly - then visit a number of classes during the day in workshops using drama techniques to bring to life the Apollo 11 adventure, and her/his role in its success. Suitable For: up to 30 pupils at a time, EYFS - KS4 (and beyond!) Exploring (according to age): preparations for the mission; history, characteristics and composition of the moon; the Apollo 11 astronauts; the role of the moon in future space exploration. Interplanetary Tours - A fast-paced exploration of our solar system in which pupils learn and teach each other key facts From Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon to the photographs sent back by Juno on its historic and ongoing mission to Jupiter, we’re all entranced by our neighbours in the solar system. And space exploration nowadays, of course, is a collaborative and multinational affair, bringing the world closer together. Taking things one step further, this intriguing workshop asks pupils to imagine the day when interplanetary tours are possible. Informed by the endeavours of such new space actors as Virgin Galactic and Space X, they’ll plan, prepare and present short plays exploring the problems posed by visiting the sulphurous volcanoes of Venus, the gaseous storms of Saturn or the icy plains of Pluto. Just remember one thing: “In space, no-one can hear you scream …” The Race into Space (Character Workshop) - Creative maths for up to 420 pupils in a single day! The search is on for Britain's next astronaut - and Major Tom wants your pupils help in selecting the best person for the job. He's found six well-suited candidates, all with different qualifications - but it's up to you to decide which one will win The Race into Space – representing Britain on a global stage! After meeting the Major at an opening assembly, and being introduced to the would-be astronauts, each class will be issued with a Mission: to use their maths skills to rank the candidates on one of a number of qualities. Each Mission calls on pupils to demonstrate mathematical fluency, reasoning and problem-solving abilities - and is in line with National Curriculum objectives for their year group. The Major will be on hand to visit each classroom with some vital, additional information - and the programme ends with a second assembly in which each class reports back its findings and helps whittle the field down to just one: Britain's next astronaut. This exciting and engaging workshop provides an ideal platform for one or two-form entry schools to enjoy a shared maths experience - and learn something about the science of space travel too! New! Journeys into Space This year marks an astonishing fifty years since the first humans walked on the moon – and Journeys into Space allows up to 420 pupils to celebrate this extraordinary milestone in a single day. Following an assembly looking at ways that light allows us to look at the history of the stars, pupils work a year group at a time, using a range of age-appropriate drama techniques to explore the wonders of the cosmos … EYFS: the characteristics of stars, planets and moons ... KS1: the life cycles of stars Years 3 & 4: The Perils of Space Travel Years 5 & 6: the moon - and the Apollo 11 landing
