This is a fabulous, fun workshop aimed at encouraging anyone who is curious about space, the Universe and astronauts.
Join us to investigate the 'little to giant' steps taken to becomimg an astronaut and working on the International Space Station. We will be doing experiments exploring the senses and discussing the effects of microgravity in space. You will learn the importance of team work and how to control robot arms.
