Event Name:  Interplanetary Tours and Moonwalking schools workshops
Event Description:  Blending science and performance arts, our World Space Day workshops are an excellent way of engaging students with science and supporting them in understanding the world (and worlds) around us. This year’s World Space Week theme is Satellite Navigation – and we have two workshops on offer which will explore this theme in interactive and engaging ways. There are two workshops on offer: Interplanetary Tours From Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon to the photographsof alien landscapes sent back by “Curiosity”, the Mars Rover, since it landed on the planet in August, we’re all entranced by our neighbours in the solar system. Taking things one step further, this intriguing workshop asks pupils to imagine the day when interplanetary tours are possible. Informed by the discoveries of such spaceware as Voyager, Hubble and Cassini, 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 …” Exploring: the solar system, orbits, gravity Cross-Curricular Links: Maths, History, English Duration: 1½ – 2½ hours, depending on how many classes Suitable For: up to 30 pupils at a time Moonwalking Our Moonwalking programme ties in perfectly with this year’s theme of satellites – as the moon of course is the earth’s only natural satellite. This busy and interactive workshop sees pupils learning about the different phases of the moon and our relationship with it – from its place in North American mythology to the Apollo programmes and beyond. The workshop will also provide scope to explore how the moon affects life on earth, from the movement of the tides to the impacts of eclipses. Exploring: satellites and orbits, lunar cycle, gravity and other forces, Cross Curricular Links: Drama, English, Maths, History, RE, Geography Duration: 1½ – 2½ hours, depending on how many classes Suitable For: up to 30 pupils at a time
