WORMS IS SPACE WITH LIBBY JACKSON – TUNE IN AT 12:30PM
On Tuesday 4 December 2018 SpaceX launched its Dragon cargo craft from the Kennedy Space Center at Cape Canaveral on a Falcon 9 rocket. On board will be the first UK-led experiment to head to the International Space Station, which uses worms to look at muscle loss in space and could lead to new treatments for muscular conditions for people on Earth. Join our guest Libby Jackson, Human Spaceflight and Microgravity Programme Manager at the UK Space Agency to learn about this exciting scientific programme.
STEAM SCHOOL TESTIMONIALS
As with all schools we constantly strive to make our curriculum as interesting and engaging as possible – teaching and learning that grabs children’s attention always has the most impact. Since subscribing to Steam School I can safely say that our curriculum has been enhanced in multiple ways and that the children (and staff) have had some fantastic opportunities to engage with an amazing range of presenters – entrepreneurs, inventors and all forward thinking, technologically advanced and fascinating to listen to. The presentations, questioning activities, challenges and tasks following this provide a wealth of opportunities for children to stretch themselves in areas they had previously little knowledge of, and they have thrived on the opportunities that Steam School would bring to any educational establishment.
We enjoyed working with Steam school because it was good getting ‘inside’ information about technology that could affect our futures. It was really exciting seeing things like the Hoverbike, the Tespack and other things – as well as learning how they were made and how they worked. Steam school is always really interesting and we look forward to this term’s presenters!
