28 Dec Destination Space – Join The Crew!
Backed by the UK Space Agency, we have joined forces with other science centres across the UK to take part in Destination Space – an exciting and hands-on season of astronauts and adventure for families and schools. Destination Space celebrates the European Space Agency’s first British astronaut, Tim Peake’s Principia mission to the International Space Station in December. It will provide children all over the UK with a unique opportunity to learn about human space flight, follow life on the International Space Station and discover the great opportunities for young people across the science and space sector.
Our Destination Space Programme will include special events for Tim Peake’s launch, meet-the-expert sessions and a fabulous astronaut shows that will engage and inspire family audiences with Tim’s mission. Have a look at our exciting programme!
