MajorTim.space’s ‘Galactic Outreach Workshops’ at Penrhyn Bay Summer Fete – Celebrating Asteroid Day – 30th June 2019!

We had a fantastic time running our drop-in ‘Be Mystified – The Forces of Science!’ workshops at Penrhyn Bay Summer Fete – 30th June 2019!

The event was held on Asteroid Day – so we celebrated by running our drop-in workshops.

Visitors to our stand made Thaumatropes – while learning the science behind them – which they could take away with them.

We had some different visitors to our stand because the event was also a Dog Show!

We took our MajorTim.space Galactic Photo Prop which was very popular with the visitors and the dogs!
More photos of visitors with the photo accessory at the end of the article.

The lucky winner of our raffle was Graham!
The prize was a signed photo of Helen Sharman.
He was thrilled with his prize (below).

 

All of the visitors had a STEMtastic time celebrating Asteroid Day 2019 at our stand!

MajorTim.space’s ‘Galactic Outreach Workshops’ at United Kingdom Imaging & Oncology Congress (UKIO) 2019 School Session!

We had a fantastic time running our drop-in ‘Minuscule Phenomenon!’ workshops at United Kingdom Imaging & Oncology Congress (UKIO) School Session – 12th June 2019!

Pupils age 13+ had a lecture by Dallas Campbell when they arrived before coming to our sessions –

Students enjoyed taking part in our drop-in ‘Minuscule Phenomenon!’ workshops, which includes the opportunity to find and see Tardigrades through microscopes, learn all the facts and meet Mossy, our large-scale 3d printed model of a Tardigrade to see what their fascinating features look like in more detail.

Every time we run our ‘Minuscule Phenomenon!’ workshops, we take as many photos as possible of the visitors with Mossy (the 3d printed Tardigrade).
Mossy was very popular!
More photos of visitors with Mossy at the end of the article.

In addition to the activities stated above we also had our incredible interactive Virtual Reality learning activity.

All of the pupils had a STEMtastic time!

MajorTim.space’s ‘Galactic Outreach Workshops’ with North Wales Scouts at their RSPB Conwy Wild Sleepout – 6th & 7th April 2019!

6th & 7th April 2019 – we delivered our Mars Mission Egg Drop workshop with Scout Association Scout groups, as part of their Wild Sleepout at RSPB Conwy!

We challenged the Scouts to design and make a protective lander for the equipment so that it lands safely on Mars.
They worked on the Saturday evening (6th April 2019) to design and build Mars landers from a range of materials.

They had to minimize the force of the impact in order to give their eggs the best chance of survival!

They learnt about acceleration, velocity,  gravity and much more!


On the Sunday morning (7th April 2019) – we returned to the Camp at RSPB Conwy and held the competition to test which Scout’s expensive technical equipment (a raw egg) would survive the long drop from the probe to the surface of Mars!

We had 3 joint winners……..

The three winning landers (Satin Express, Omelette 3 and This Name Is Ironic) were built by…….

Abi (Satin Express), Millie (Omelette 3) and Angharad (This Name Is Ironic)!

From left to right: Abi, Millie and Angharad

It was great to see the young people having fun exploring STEM and excited to spend Saturday night camping at RSPB Conwy!

 

Fantastic STEM Explorers – who enjoyed learning the science behind the activities!
