Education

Education LogoThe National Space Centre Education Team have created a diverse range of workshops, programmes and trails that support National Curriculum learning at all ages. Take part in one of our Education or Space Academy programmes, including planetarium shows, tailored workshops, or simulated space missions in the Challenger Learning Centre.

 

All of our programmes are linked with the National Curriculum for Primary and Secondary Education. The National Space Academy partnership, led by the National Space Centre, is specifically focused on supporting secondary students and their teachers.


A range of curriculum focused programmes, careers events, teacher CPD opportunities and other resources are available. For more information about what we can offer look at our Space Academy pages.


When visiting the Space Centre galleries you can focus your students' attention on the exhibits and how they relate to what they are learning by using one of our exhibition trails. There are different trails for each of the key stages, from key stage 1 to key stage 4. Each trail is aimed at different areas of the curriculum to enhance students' understanding of specific topics.

If you can't come to us we can come to you. Why not try one of our exciting video conferences or one of our outreach programmes, which include workshops and our inflatable planetarium (the StarDome).
