  • Mission:Rescue Outreach Development Brief

    Winchester Science Centre are looking for an experienced science communicator to develop a space themed outreach programme for KS2/KS3 children.

    About Mission Rescue:
    Mission:Rescue is a highly stimulating and immersive experience that takes children on a mission in space. During their expedition, they are faced with a series of unexpected events that challenge their success. Using the available tools and resources, the children have to think like engineers to find a crew missing in action, build a heat shield and safely land a spaceship. The children will need to be creative, communicate well and work as a team to find the solutions that will enable them to complete their mission

    Promotional video available here.

    Learning Objectives:
    Concepts covered will include reflection and refraction, Newton’s laws, forces, conduction, coding and programming and temperature differences. The students will complete a video diary during the day to monitor and measure their own progress, whilst being able to share this with class at the end of the challenge.

    This is also a fantastic opportunity for students to develop their skills in areas such as teamwork, communication and presenting.
