Airbus Discovery Centre

To support our recent science topic, Year 5 had a fantastic day at the Airbus Discovery Centre in Stevenage. The children had their curiosity peaked all day as they moved through the talks and creative activities about Mars and our Solar System.

Seeing where the Mars Rover is tested in a simulated environment proved to be one of the highlights with many questions being asked about the current research; to search for signs of past habitability, such as water, organic compounds, and an energy source —the ingredients necessary for life as we know it.

In the discovery room, everyone had freedom to play and learn about all sorts of aspects of science. We ended the day relaxing in a darkened room looking at the stars and listening to Greek Myths about some of the constellations. A very relaxing end to a busy day!

We hope you enjoy some of our photos from the day.
