Have you ever wanted to take part in a Space mission but are unable to make it to the National Space Centre? Now there is a simple way you can take part from your own classroom through an e-Mission or a Video Conference.

"I am so happy I got chosen for this wonderful experience, I gained lots of teamwork and communication skills. Also I enjoyed the suspense of the situation at hand." Adyam Mehari, year 9 student Smiley

Virtual Classroom is a great way to bring the National Space Centre to your school and doesn't necessarily require much equipment. With just a webcam, microphone, computer and a broadband connection, your students can work together to complete challenges and evacuate residents in danger, all coordinated through our Mission Commanders here at the National Space Centre.

Once you have booked your mission date we will arrange a free test connection to ensure your video conference runs smoothly.

1 hour video conference: cost £100+VAT

30 min video conference: cost £60+VAT

Operation Space Station: cost £175+VAT - 75 minutes

Operation Montserrat: cost £300+VAT - 90 minutes

We offer other videoconferencing sessions, covering topics such as The Solar System, Living and Working in Space and Ask the Expert. You can view the latest list of our sessions by clicking on the buttons below.

 

NOTE: Our FREE software allows you to download a plug-in, enabling you to connect to us just using your normal web browser plus webcam - it couldn't be safer or easier!
