In this British Science Week space-themed workshop, we discover how engineering has taken us into space, landed us safely on the Moon and explored planets too far for human travel.
We learn about the challenges engineers have overcome and take part in two challenges of our own, including building rovers using motors and circuits to explore a planet's surface.
Children will be problem solving, collaborating and thinking creatively as they learn engineering concepts and skills linked to the Design & Technology National Curriculum.
There are two versions of this workshop that you can use with LKS2 or UKS2 with Y5-6 applying additional critical thinking skills to their design and engineering challenge.
The workshop will take around 90 minutes in total.
