  • teachers will have the opportunity to 
  • experience a range of activities designed to engage and excite pupils in science and wider STEM activities linked to space exploration
  • explore investigations around how to keep Astronauts safe in space
  • acquire a range of skills through hands on experience designing and testing rockets and rovers, and consider how these can be used back in the classroom
