The National Space Academy uses current space contexts as well as the history of space exploration to link curriculum chemistry to exciting research in the space sector. Topics such as spectroscopy, atmospheric science, organic chemistry, redox reactions and chemical environments are all relevant to space research and the classroom. All of our courses give teachers ideas that can be immediately implemented in school, with a focus on hands-on classroom investigations. See the individual event listings for more information.
The National Space Academy is currently planning its programme of events for the academic year 2016-2017. Please check back for more information or join our mailing list.
September 2016 onwards
The National Space Centre, Leicester
These sessions will enable teachers of chemistry to explore a range of ideas for teaching topics across the chemistry curriculum and develop an understanding of how practical work can be made more relevant and effective using the inspirational context of Martian exploration.
