Space School

Space School

Date & time: 12–2pm 18 July 2019, AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time)
Location: Marie Reay Teaching Centre Kambri The Australian National University
Event series: Canberra Moon Week

Through a range of activities, demonstrations, and play, students will explore our solar system and beyond alongside experts in the field from Australia and around the world. We will design and test rockets, do some explosions, simulate asteroid impacts, build a Mars base, try on spacesuits, and ask - what does it take to get to space? What is it like to be up there? And how can we learn more about space, when it's so far away?

Recommended age range: 3-13 years old (pre-school, primary school and early high school aged students). Children must be accompanied by an adult.

Space School will also be open on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 July from 12-2pm. Register for Friday or Saturday.

Presented in partnership with ACT Government.
