Life in Space

Are you Suited for Space

This is an exciting, informative workshop whereby students can find out what it is like to be an Astronaut living and working on the International Space Station. We explain the dangers of carrying out an EVA (spacewalk) and why the different layers of the Space suit are necessary to protect the Astronaut.

Explore topics like why losing pressure in a space suit could be life-threatening and see the devastating effects of increasing kinetic energy.

 Recommended: Years 4-9

Curriculum links: Materials and their Properties, Keeping warm, Characteristics of Materials, Food and Nutrition.
