NATIONAL SPACE CENTRE
out of this world!
a trip to remember
When students arrive, a short briefing is held in which the student astronauts review their mission objectives.
The group is then divided, so that the Mission Controllers can take their stations and the astronauts "blast off" to the Space Station.
Throughout the mission, students are presented with tasks and realistic dilemmas that build problem solving, critical thinking, and communication skills.
Halfway through, the mission requires a crew exchange so everyone has an opportunity to experience both Mission Control and the Space Station.The Missions have been specifically adapted by the University of Leicester to fit the requirements of the National Curriculum. The missions are designed for groups of between 14 - 34 participants. we would love to see you and your class!
