Include up to 180 pupils per day

The moments of lift-off and landing are the most dangerous in any space mission - and form the exciting context for our electronic sensors workshops. Students will learn how to build prototype circuits using an electronic breadboard and a wide range of components rarely used outside of GCSE electronics or A'Level physics. Working in pairs within a team they must to design and construct sensors to improve safety on a spacecraft - and work out how to fix the problems when they occur. To do so requires great teamwork and leadership. But to win the space race, teams will go head-to-head and demonstrate they have the knowledge and problem solving skills to develop the best technology.

This Workshop Has Been Adapted To Be Covid-Secure:

We can deliver a maximum of 3 sessions per day and require extra time (15 minutes) to clean work surfaces between sessions.

We will issue every participant with clean/unused equipment for individual use rather than pair work.

We will deliver this workshop following the additional safety precautions described on our Covid-Secure page.  Read Here
