Questacon has a virtual excursion for your classrooms starting from next week and they are looking for more classes to get involved.
Mission Astronautica is a FREE digital program with 5 sessions running over 6 weeks. Over the course of the program they set the students the challenge of making a neutrally buoyant object, and run workshop sessions that will help them achieve that goal. They also hold a launch and finale event where the students get to meet the other participating schools, share what they have done and talk to astronaut Clay Anderson about how neutrally buoyant objects have helped him get to space!
The dates for the project are the 30th of July, the 6th of August, the 13th of August, the 27th of August and the 17th of September. The sessions run on Thursdays, and apart from the launch and finale events which are scheduled for 10am the times are negotiable.
