Working Science provides hands-on space workshops for children in primary schools. Our workshops are very practical and interactive. All children get to interact and experiment with the equipment we provide. All of our workshops are delivered by an experienced science communicator, with a PhD in Physics and Astrophysics. Our Space workshops allow children to try ‘hands-on’ science experiments on the theme of the science of space to stimulate excitement and learning.
Here is a testimonial from a recent
school we visited:
"Year 2 loved their Space workshop with Dr. Francis. They were fascinated by the facts they learned and have used their experience to help them write a space narrative in English!
Teachers give us outstanding reviews saying they would recommend these workshops without hesitation. See our great recommendations.
We will work with you to tailor our events to suit the prior learning of your pupils, to extend their learning and enthuse them about science.
For more information and full itineraries for these workshops for your school get in touch with Dr Gareth Francis.
Space, Stars and the Universe Workshop
Our "Space, Stars and the Universe Workshop", engages children to with facts about the planets, comets, meteorites, stars, black holes and galaxies. Children get to experience the effects of dry ice which is a similar temperature to Mars, see the bending of space to create gravity and they get to hold real meteorites.
This Workshop, teaches children about rockets, launching into space, the space shuttle, living in space, the ISS, and NASA and ESA missions to the moon and Mars. We launch rockets in the playground and the children get to try astronaut ice cream.
