Physics Trip to Space Centre

The Thirds visited Leicester Space Centre and took a trip to Mars last week. Each girl had applied for their job on the trip and were put in teams to work together. They rose to the challenge and engaged well with their jobs, although some also learned that reading the instructions is a useful skill!

The Thirds visited Leicester Space Centre and took a trip to Mars last week. Each girl had applied for their job on the trip and were put in teams to work together. They rose to the challenge and engaged well with their jobs, although some also learned that reading the instructions is a useful skill! Unfortunately, a dust storm arose which threatened the hiking team. The Thirds had to decide whether sending a probe to Phobos was more important than ensuring the recovery of the hiking team. All decided that people were more important than probes so the hiking team were saved. The pupils may not have been in school, but they used their maths, language, drama, science and ethical knowledge learned in lessons to enjoy a successful mission.
