Event Name:  How to tackle climate change from space
Event Description:  Tuesday 5th October 10:30 - 11:30 BST. In this webinar for upper Key Stage 2 students (ages 9-11), a data scientist and an engineer give careers talks about their journey from school to today, and share projects they've recently been working on at RAL Space, the UK's national space laboratory, to help study the Earth's climate from space. Systems Engineer Cat prepares spacecraft for launch that will monitor weather and climate change. Environmental Data Scientist Kate gathers Earth observation data from satellites and ground-based sources and manages them on the supercomputer JASMIN. She worked with the team who published the IPCC report. Students can take part in a Q&A with the speakers, and an activity to explore the Earth from space using images taken by satellites, which were partly designed and tested at RAL Space.

Report on the Results:  An additional 500 students were registered to watch the recording rather than attend live. The highlights of the event were the interactive sessions: the quiz with satellite images had great engagement, and 80 questions were asked during the Q&A. In the instant feedback at the end of the webinar, 88% of attendees were interested to work in the space industry in future. In the post-event survey, 100% of respondents said their students were likely to consider pursuring STEM in future (50% were more likely than before attending this event), 100% said the level of the event was just right, 100% rated it 4 or 5 out of 5, 100% wanted to find out more about the topic afterwards, and 100% were more aware of different careers in the space industry.
