A great centrepiece for a day of enrichment / space education this nine metre rocketship, which will arrive on its own transporter vehicle, is available for hire to schools throughout the UK. The excitement and interest generated by having a real rocket arrive and then elevated to its dramatic, near vertical launch position, will last long after your space themed day. There’s no better way to inspire and enthuse students, make a statement in your community or engage with students from your feeder schools. The rocket comes with a Starchaser presenter who will be available to provide talks by the rocket. The Skybolt rocket may also be hired in combination with other Starchaser outreach products at a discounted rate.
This acitivity raises aspirations, promotes STEM uptake and will leave a positive and long lasting impression on all participants.To book this activity, please contact:
