Working in space

For this session students will find out the answers to the following questions: What do the UK Space Agency and European Space Agency do? What are the STEM subjects and how do they relate to a rover mission? What jobs are there from design, launch, landing and exploring? What skills are needed within these jobs? Students explore their own competencies through a survey and make use of jobs or skills cards in order to identify the relation to jobs or skills that are needed for the ExoMars mission.

These resources are set in the context of the European Space Agency ExoMars mission, which includes the launch and operation of the Rosalind Franklin rover to the surface of Mars in 2022/2023.
