For 2013 we plan a packed programme, including old favourites such as rocket building astronomical observing using the University's telescopes.
The first weekend is for ages 11 - 14 year olds and will be a hands on weekend of challenging activities investigating the skills and knowledge needed to explore our Universe. This year our focus will be on the planet Mars and students will cover subjects such as planetary geology, asteroids and meteorites, engineering design and robotics, biology, as well as living and working in space.
The second weekend is for ages 15-18 year olds and will also focus on the planet Mars, with a weekend of tasks covering subjects from engineering design, space radiation, heat, light and energy, planetary exploration, robotics and communication, as well as some elementary mathematics and geometry.
Both weekends will include observing sessions with the University telescopes and an experience in the Astrodome mobile sky simulator.
