This is a block booking for all of the events in our Out Of This World term.  This booking is for those families who would prefer the Friday morning session of Earth and Space at the History of Science Museum.


Voyager in Space

We will begin this session with a showing of the documentary Voyager in Space followed by an effervescent film cannister rocket craft or space-themed improv drama session (your choice on the day) and a rocket launch of our own to kick-off the term with a bang!

Content will be aimed at KS2.  Please pay for children ages 7 and up; siblings are welcome to attend but those who wish to make rockets must be paid for, please.


Earth and Space ~ a KS2 workshop

Explore planets in our Solar System. Learn about orreries (mechanical models of the Solar System) and see one in action. Meet some famous astronomers from the past and search the galleries for instruments and objects once used to explore space.

Though this event is aimed at KS2, siblings who are not yet 7 are welcome, but must be paid for as the museum has limited space; babes in arms are the only exception.  There are 10 spaces for adult chaperones.  Please let us know if you need to be/ would like to be one of them.  A DBS checked chaperone will be available for parents who need to drop children off.

We will need a minimum of 13 children for this session to go ahead.  If we do not reach the minimum number of children, your booking remains valid for the planetarium presentation and space weather talk and you will be reimbursed the £3 difference of the block booking.


Space Weather talk

Scientist Chris Scott from the University of Reading will be with us to talk about coronal mass ejections, solar winds and how these impact us here on Earth.  Chris works with a mission of spacecraft that observe these phenomen.  We’re told he has great videos to share with us!  Chris will discuss his work with Citizen Science too so you can take part in his work!
