  • St George's Stars climb a Martian Mountain!

    It was really fun climbing high to reach the top of our martian mountain! We didn't find any martians though. We wish we could meet Beegu and her friends! We love training like astronauts and doing Mission X activities :)

  • Ramsden Rockets are go!

    For our first mission, we designed our own mission patches just like astronauts attach to their space suits. We received our mission passports and got cracking with our second mission – media challenge!

    Here’s what we found out.

    Jack and Liam – The UK Space agency has a competition for young people to contribute to the knowledge of satellites. You could win £50,000

    Faith and Elizabeth – We looked at the apple seeds from Newton’s apple trees. It reminded it us of the Rocket Science seeds we grew in school last year. If we could grow food in space we would be able to live on other planets.

    Ruby and Lewis – The programme for the next launch into space will cost at least 50 million pounds. this does not include the 20 billion pounds of investment in innovative and high potential businesses.
