Let’s Celebrate World Space Week 4-10 October 2013
World Space Week is an internationally celebrated week focusing on the celebration of ‘Science and technology, and their contribution to the betterment of the human condition’.
This annual event recognises both the launch of the first human made satellite in 1957 and the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Peaceful Uses of Outer Space, including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, signed in 1967. The aim of the week is to educate and raise public support for the benefits we receive from space, whilst exciting our younger generation.
Here at IntoScience we are equally as passionate about informing students about the world of space. Our curriculum-based program is a great way for students and teachers to get involved in World Space Week.
As you can see below, in the Earth, Moon and Sun activity students are invited to learn about the different perspectives of our solar system. They learn about the movements of the earth, moon and sun and how they affect us here on earth. Students are encouraged to interact with the program as they watch a solar eclipse from different perspectives and categorize items from our solar system into stars, planets and satellites. This is just one of the many activities on IntoScience that allows students to learn about science through ‘hands on learning’.
