We've been working with classes of 7 - 10 year olds since we started A Decade With Mars. The project is really all about the future, so we want a big part of it to involve talking to young people about what they want to see and do in the world in the next ten years.
As it's a ten year project, it will grow with them. We'll be keeping in touch with classes we've visited, and revisiting with new workshops and things to get involved in as the project develops. So far we've launched bottle rockets and weather balloons together.
Children and teachers can keep up with the project and see documentation of their school's involvement on our children's website:
It was designed specially by children's illustrator Laurie Stansfield.
Our workshops combine art and science, often fitting in with science weeks or key stage topics on Earth and Space.
If you are interested in finding out more about the workshops we offer and how your school could get involved, please contact us.
