Sessions

31 March - Exoplanets

Find out about planets outside our Solar System in this 1 hour video conference. Learn about where and how we can find exoplanets. Find out what types of planets might be out there. Using simple items you will find at home, have a go at some hands on science with our Goldilocks zone experiment, and become a planet hunter as part of our exoplanet activity.

07 April – Life in Space

Find out about the training an astronaut goes through before they go to space and see if you have what it takes to be an astronaut. Discover the different layers of an EVA space suit and how they protect astronauts from the hazards of space, while making your own model space suit swatch. See what life is like for astronauts in micro gravity and how it affects the human body.

14 April – Aliens

Explore the possibility of life in space, what does it need to survive and where might we find it? Then create your own alien and take part in our alien evolution activity. Discover how life on other planets might have evolved in this creative and interactive activity. Find out the basics of the theory of evolution and how it is driven by adaptation and survival. Will your alien survive on a new world?
