Astro Learning at the National Space Centre

Astro Learning at the National Space Centre

A group of Year 9 students travelled to the National Space Centre in Leicester this week to support their STEM learning. The students enjoyed looking around the centre and participating in all of the interactive learning on offer, travelling through time up the rocket tower and viewing the various exhibits and displays.

They took part in a Mars Rover coding activity. In teams, they were tasked with programming their rover to complete certain missions, including launching a catapult at an alien.

In addition, students visited the centre’s full-dome 360-degree Sir Patrick Moore's planetarium, where they floated around the International Space Station and learned about what it takes to become an astronaut.

The day demonstrated how students could apply their STEM-related skills from school to the world of astronomy, and everyone had a great time.
