Science Ambassadors at Jodrell Bank

Science Ambassadors visit Jodrell Bank and the Lovell Telescope.

On Wednesday 6thJune, Y5 Science Ambassadors went on an exciting trip to Jodrell Bank! They took part in two fantastic Science Workshops with a space theme, learning more about how to become an astronaut, keeping fit in space and trying to build a circuit whilst wearing astronauts’ gloves!  Using their knowledge of the solar system, they analysed rock samples to identify a meteorite, investigated how craters form and the effect of gravity on planets of different sizes.  We even got to see an explosive rocket engine demonstration!
