We’re not quite ready to come back to Earth just yet with one more space themed STEM workshop that’s sure to delight every outer space enthusiast!

Come take a tour of our solar system; learn about our nearest planetary neighbours, study their sizes and compositions, and make planetary models of your own. And what’s a space workshop without rockets? Participants will be making their own model rockets and blasting off into the great unknown.

Best of all, we’ll be using a telescope set up on the roof and rounding off this spectacular session with some moon-gazing.
