Destination Space

Written by: Elmtree Press

Spring Term 2016

Eureka! is proud to be the only venue in Yorkshire taking part in Destination Space; the national education programme celebrating Tim Peake’s mission with the European Space Agency. We’ll be exploring what it takes to orbit the Earth on board the International Space Station and how the entire space crew of scientists, engineers, and astronauts have a role to play. Specialist workshops for each key stage are packed with hands-on experiments from launching rockets to robotics. We even have our very own Sokol space suit, just like the one Tim Peake used on his journey.

As well as our workshop programme, Eureka! has over 400 interactive exhibits across six curriculum themed galleries. We combine education with enjoyment, resulting in effective learning and lasting memories – a school trip to Eureka! is a hands-on, fun-packed day that children will never forget.
