Destination Space - Our Workshops

 

 

destination Space - Our workshops

Tim Peake, the European Space Agency’s first British Astronaut blasted off into space on 15th December 2015 and is set to spend six months living and working aboard the International Space Station. To celebrate this fantastic event and the wonders of human flight, the UK Space Agency has partnered with the Association for Science and Discovery Centres (ASDC). We will be delivering a season of astronauts and adventure here at Dundee Science Centre as part of this great venture!

We will be delivering Destination Space workshops for learners at the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th right through until 2017! Have a look below to see what we can offer!

 

Destination Space! (1st Level)

We've been invited to the ISS! We'll need to get some expert help to prepare for travelling to and living in space.

We'll launch a rocket and dock with the International Space Station, then we can experience life in orbit through a series of challenges. But a sudden emergency requires us to test and select materials and equipment to get us out of the Space Station to fix the problem.

Once repaired, the group take in the view of Earth before find a way safely to return to the ground.

Destination Space (2nd Level)

With Tim's mission to the ISS, we are looking to recruit and train the next generation of space scientists.

This workshop focuses on some of the key skills needed to be not only an astronaut, but a scientist or engineer working in the space industry.

After a brief bit of training and a demonstration and explanation of how astronauts get off the ground, the simulated mission activities begin.

Destination Space (3rd, 4th Level)

With Tim's mission to the ISS, we are looking to recruit and train the next generation of space scientists. This workshop focuses on some of the key skills needed to be not only an astronaut, but a scientist or engineer working in the space industry.

After a brief bit of training and a demonstration and explanation of how astronauts get off the ground, the simulated mission activities begin. Through problem solving and experiments, students get the chance to use their communiaction, mathematical, English, science and team-working skills to control a robot arm and design a circuit system for the ISS and investigate the best materials to solve a carbon dioxide emergency on board.
