STEM Space Workshop

This week, Years 5 & 6 welcomed Dr. Irene Wise, from Lancaster University, to lead them in a Space themed workshop.

We looked at the problems faced by the crew of Apollo 13, and tried to work out how to solve it using a plastic box, a rubber tube, a plastic bag, cardboard and tape!

We also made a new material that could be used in Space – slime!

Using the slime and other materials, we designed and made prototype landing pod to safely land an astronaut (jelly baby) onto the surface of Mars.
