Skills for Space

Have you got what it takes to be an astronaut or a space scientist, a mission controller or space engineer? Put your skills to the test in interactive workshop preparing you to become part of an imaginary space mission.

It takes a whole galaxy of people to send an astronaut into space – from scientists to mission controllers and from doctors to engineers. In this interactive workshop, young explorers can find out what it’s like to work in the space industry – preparing the next generation of inter-galactic adventurers.

Working in small groups to solve problems, you’ll learn how to control a robotic arm and work out how to deal with floating liquids in space, with a strong focus on forces and materials.
