We’ll begin by introducing Neil Armstrong and his Apollo 11 team.

Then the children will learn how to build their own rocket launch pads and everyone will have the opportunity to have a turn at launching their group rocket safely before we move on to an investigation!

Next we will learn about the critical moment of the moon landing. . .We’ll discover that there was only 15 seconds remaining for Neil Armstrong and his team to land Apollo 11 before it ran out of fuel! The children will be challenged to land their own Apollo 11 rockets on our moon markers, experimenting with how the different amounts of ‘fuel’ added to the rocket changes the distance it travels, providing them with ample opportunity to apply their mathematical skills!

Finally we will explore the visual wonders of space!We will round up the workshop by exploring the sights Neil Armstrong and his team might have seen from Apollo 11! Children will get creative with some large scale, space themed artwork, exploring the stars, their constellations and their names. Inspiring your children and giving them the knowledge to try their hand at star gazing.
