We offer a range of fun and engaging secondary school activities
Our science and engineering complement many areas of the secondary school curriculum, providing inspiring and engaging real-life examples of STEM skills and careers. We are currently developing our programmes for secondary schools and are keen to hear from schools that would like to visit and/or trial new activities.
Bring the excitement of space into your classroom through our loans programmes. Each loan box comes with supporting resources to help you run inspiring, curriculum-linked activities, and the loan schemes are entirely FREE to schools.
• Meteorite box: contains a range of meteorites and meteorite-related items to encourage discussion about space environment and how objects come to Earth.
• Moon box: contains meteorites, rocks similar to those you would find on the Moon, and replica Moon dust.
• Mars box: contains meteorites, a Mars sample, and simulated Martian surface dust.
Resources to support work around meteorites are included in the boxes.
