Students connect with engineering teams behind the ExoMars missions
Students will ASK questions, CHAT live to engineers, and VOTE for a winner
During the activity, students will be able to:
- Read about what each of the teams works on, and receive monthly updates on their progress
- ASK their questions about the things they want to know
- Have two chances to CHAT to the engineers live during lessons, and login from home to join the evening live chats with their families twice a month
- VOTE for the team they want to win the £500 prize to spend on more STEM engagement
Creating links across the curriculum
The nature of these missions means that experts from a wide range of disciplines come together to work on the project. This creates a chance to link to the project from all parts of the curriculum. So your students could take part in a chat during a science class about evolution and fossil records or a geography class about weather systems, or ask questions about programming the robot during a computing lesson, or about the properties of the materials used to build it during physics, chemistry or design technology.
Key activity details
This is a new activity open to all schools in the UK, with limited spaces for classes in Year 5 – Year 11, that will run throughout the school year from 6th January – 10th July 2020. If you would like to involve your class, register your interest by Friday 29th November.
