Junior astronaut class

 

From 6 to 8 years old. Three days in an astronaut's shoes. The space activities are supervised by teachers seconded to Euro Space Society by the Ministry for Education, Arts and Letters of the French-speaking Community of Belgium.

Programme

During three days, your class will have the opportunity to test the Moonwalk and Marswalk simulators as well as the manual multi-axis chair which simulates the disorientation astronauts may experience in space. Students also take part in scientific experiments which highlight the behaviour of the human body in space. A planetarium session to see what can be seen in the sky that day and a workshop to build a 3D constellation are also included.

Complete programme available on request.

Multi-axis chair

Simulates the disorientation that may be experienced in a space capsule. The multi-axis chair is standard training for astronauts.

3D constellation

The children connect numbers to draw a constellation. The stars are made using “Fimo Air” modelling clay in which they put toothpicks. The "stars" are then dipped in fluorescent paint and placed on a polystyrene board.

Guided tour of the American space shuttle (actual size)  

What does the flight deck look like? How does it take off? What was its purpose (satellites, laboratories, ISS construction, etc.)? How does it come back to Earth?
