Bringing science to life...
General information
Starchaser's 'SPACE4SCHOOLS' sessions are booked in half day blocks.
Neither the timings of the sessions, nor the age groups that they are suitable for, are strictly limited.
The sessions fall broadly into two groups: packages, and individual sessions that can be repeated throughout the day.

Packages
STANDARD PRIMARY
The package is suitable for ALL AGES and is available for half and full day bookings.
Team Starchaser Presentation (50 Minutes): See below.
It Came From Outer Space (20 Minutes): A handling session with space and rocketry artefacts.
Rocket Factory 1 (60 Minutes): See below.
Model Rocket Launch (20 Minutes): A demonstration of one of Starchaser's model rockets.

SPACE EXPLORATION
Space Exploration is specifically aimed at KEY STAGE 2 to link in with the topics that most pupils study in year 5.
Our Solar System Talk (60 Minutes): A talk on the Solar System with images and videos of the planets.
Plamingo (20 minutes): A fun quiz to test and reinforce the topics in the Our Solar System Talk.
Alien Impressions (20 minutes): Design an alien for a moon/planet in our Solar System.
The Search for Life (40 minutes): Is there life out there? This discussion delves into the possibilities of extraterrestrial life.

Both packages consist of 4 distinct parts. The packages can be expanded to a full day programme by repeating sections 2 and 3 during the afternoon, and delaying the final session till the end of the day.
