This assembly resource, from the Association for Science Education (ASE), focuses on whether we need to explore space at all, particularly in view of the vast cost involved. This material is part of the SYCD: Science Year Is There Life? collection.
The aim of the assembly series is to make students more aware of their need for scientific understanding in the world outside school.
The profile of science in a school can be raised by a speech in assembly. To illustrate this assembly included is a series of photographs for use through a digital projector or as OHTs. This speech has been written with a Headteacher or Head of Year in mind.
