An Outreach Programme is being organised for primary and secondary school children on both days of the UK Space Conference 2015.
Activities will include talks, workshops, experiments and competitions to capture the imagination of students and inspire interest in science. This activity will support the aims of the Innovation and Growth Strategy Space Growth Action Plan and help students consider careers involving science and engineering by showing them the range of opportunities for work in the space sector.
July 2015 sees the UK's premier space conference come to Liverpool and, for one day, you and your students can take part. On Tuesday 14th July there will be a special one-day event for Secondary schools, packed with workshops, activities, and lectures. In the same venue as the conference, this is an ideal opportunity for your students not just to learn about space science, industry and exploration, but to see for themselves the exciting opportunities and careers in technology and science offered by UK space industry.
