Space Week 2018

Training for Space!

Wednesday October 10th

Start your day in a Space Park designing workshop where we will ask students from 5th and 6th class to help us in Lough Gur to come up with some crazy ideas for our proposed new Solstice Park. The new outdoor area will be developed to inspire the next generation of space explorers!

Norah Patten will then join us to talk first hand about her participation in Project PoSSUM (Polar Suborbital Science in the Upper Mesosphere), sharing videos and photos of what it takes to get to space: high-g flights, weightlessness, sea survival, spacesuit testing and lots more. Norah will also talk about how she became interested in space when she was in national school in Ballina, Co. Mayo and how she has managed to create a space career. Of course, there will be lots of time for questions and answers!

This workshop is suitable for 5th and 6th class students. Booking is essential. Contact [email protected] for further information.
