One Small Step (Seniour)
This presentation explores Earth's only natural satellite - the Moon. What it's made of, why it's there and how man's fascination has led us to taking our first steps on its surface.

Photographs and video footage from the Apollo missions allow us to follow the build up and ground breaking journey of Apollo 11 - inspiring kids with a sense of awe over man's ultimate achievement. Pupils will also get the opportunity to discuss whether the moon landings actually occurred and the future of man on the Moon!.
