National Space Centre

Your day at the National Space Centre will be split into two parts. Half of the day will be in the Challenger Learning Centre on a simulated space mission. You and your fellow team mates will be divided into two crews, who each take their shift in the Space Station and on Mission Control. Here the main challenge will be communication, especially when there are mission- or even life-threatening problems to resolve.


For the other half of the day you will have ample time to look round the centre, checking out the new features and having a go at all the hands-on activities and the simulator ride. A scheduled viewing of a show in the planetarium, such as the award-winnng 'We are Astronomers' is a must.
