MajorTim.space’s ‘Galactic Outreach Workshops’ at World Museum Liverpool’s Stargazing Night – 7th February 2020!

In a unique collaboration with the World Museum Liverpool we were proud to run our drop-in ‘Binary Talks’ workshops and a Galactic Quiz with prizes at World Museum Liverpool’s Stargazing Night – 7th February 2020.

We were commemorating two very significant 7th February occasions – the first was our patron Apollo 15 astronaut, Al Worden’s 88th birthday and the second was National Periodic Table Day.

During our ‘Binary Talks’ workshop visitors learnt how to use the binary coding system whilst creating a keyring.
They had the chance to “code” their own initial using green and red beads following the binary code.

Our Galactic Quiz with prizes was very popular…

We also took our MajorTim.space Galactic Photo Prop which is always very popular with the visitors.
More photos of visitors with the photo accessory at the end of the article.

The lucky winner of our raffle was…..  Adam Hough (age 11)!

The prize was a signed photo of astronaut Don Thomas – plus, the chance to record a vlog of his next Space/STEM adventure for our blog – watch this space…

Adam was thrilled with his prize (below).

We were also extremely happy to announce that the second part of MajorTim.space’s Polymath Cerebration Podcast episode 3 was recorded on stage with Dr Jackie Bell – following on from the Q&A with Jackie at World Museum’s Stargazing event in November 2019.

During the event we met Edward (age 8), a future scientist who wanted to wish our patron Apollo 15 astronaut, Al Worden a Happy Birthday…

All of the visitors to our stand had STEMtastic time!

We had a fantastic time running our drop-in ‘Magical Illusions’ workshops at Techniquest Glyndwr’s Astronomy Club – 1st February 2020.

Visitors to our stand made phenomenal STEM Spinning Tops – while learning the science behind them.

Visitors also had a blast learning about ESA’s Rosetta Spacecraft Legacy while make models of Rosetta and Philae in our ‘Explore Comet 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko with Rosetta’ workshops.

We also took our MajorTim.space Galactic Photo Prop which is always very popular with the visitors.

The lucky winner of our raffle was….  Gareth!

During the event we met Oliver – a future astronaut who wants to be the first person on Mars.
After making a model of the Rosetta Spacecraft and learning about ESA’s historic mission during our workshops – he wanted to say hello to his new heroes – Mark McCaughrean (Senior Advisor for Science & Exploration at the European Space Agency) and Dr Matt Taylor (Rosetta Mission Project Scientist) – so he recorded a video for our social media pages.
When we posted the video both Mark and Matt replied with congratulations for the young space explorer – Oliver was absolutely thrilled!

 

All who visited our stand had a STEMtastic time and we can’t wait for the last TQG Astronomy Club of the season – 7th March 2020!

On This Day 4 years ago…

Today (15.12.2018) is four years since Tim Peake launched to the International Space Station (ISS) – becoming the first British ESA astronaut and the second British citizen (after Helen Sharman) to go to space.

On the 15th December 2015 – Tim took the most exhilarating ride of his life, lifting off on a Russian Soyuz rocket with Russian commander Yuri Malenchenko and US astronaut Tim Kopra.

Dallas Campbell reported live from the launch in Kazakhstan.

Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain presented live coverage of British astronaut Tim Peake’s arrival at the International Space Station, at the Science Museum in London.  They were joined by astronauts including former ISS commander Chris Hadfield and Helen Sharman.

Source – BBC

Since his Principia Mission, Tim has done many tours/talks, attended events, took on the role as a Scout ambassador, writing books and much more.

Young people have been inspired by Tim’s Principia Mission – they may not have had the interest in space subjects before, especially from a scientific or mathematical point of view, but have been drawn in through a number of different ways, such as competitions, challenges and experiments!

 

Congratulations Tim on all of your fantastic achievements!
