Returning to Earth
Surviving the fireball of re-entry is one of the greatest challenges to be overcome during spaceflight. In this session you can design your own re-entry protections system. Lots of ideas and activities to support CfE BGE and National 4/5 Physics plus a class set of resources for a re-entry heat shield practical for each school represented.
Places limited, please book via Sonia Watson, STEM Learning Manager, Aberdeen Science Centre at firstname.lastname@example.org. These events are free to attend for secondary science teachers thanks to the support of the following organisations:
