Engineering the Moon: The Engineering Challenges of being on the Moon
This free, 2-hour course will show participants how to use inquiry based learning techniques to promote children’s learning and understanding of Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM). Participants will also explore activities that support the theme of Engineers Week. These have been developed from ESERO and Discovery Primary Science & Maths resources.
