Running a space STEM day in secondary school

Hi all,

I hope everyone has had a good break.  I’m putting together an article for the STEM Learning summer secondary school magazine about running an off-timetable STEM day to celebrate the Apollo 11 Moon landing in July, 2019.  If anyone has or is planning to run a space themed enrichment day and would like to contribute to the article, can you please send me an e-mail asap to t.lyons @ stem.org.uk. 

I need to get contributions before 20th January, but it can just be a paragraph or two.

Thanks

Tom

Tom can I just check that you are requesting space themed enrichment days that are taking place in Secondary Schools? As you know I deal with mostly primary but I am doing these sorts of days all of the time. In fact I did one today with 60 UKS2 children. I am happy to write a couple of paragraphs if you like or perhaps ask the Science Lead at the school to make a comment (or two!) on how today engaged and inspired the participating co-hort. Would that be of any use?

Hi Jo,

If they have done any Moon based activities then it would be nice to have something for the magazine for Rachel's article.

Thanks

I will put something together for you on Thursday. I have run week long activities for a number of years and am putting together an Apollo 11 themed session for July for schools in East Anglia. I also have been delivering Apollo talks to groups in the evening.

We are doing an "out of this world" theme for World Book Day in March - always a big weekly event in school!
