Space Place Winter School Holidays – Tuesday July 16

July 16, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 12:30 pm

Touch the Moon

If there’s no gravity in space, how come the astronauts didn’t fly off the moon?

During this holiday programme experience, kids will learn about gravity and marvel at the simple rules that keep our feet on the ground.
We will answer questions like why do we have gravity on earth but not in space?
We will also make our own versions of the Apollo 11 spaceship and test out seeing how far we can get them to fly in the sky.

Spaces are limited so jump on board soon and we will blast you to the Moon.

An awesome science and technology-focused holiday programme that’ll have your kids over the moon!
