Primary Christmas Lecture Videos

Every year we host a Christmas Space Event aimed at ages 7-11. You can watch some of our previously recorded events here.

 

The Solar System and Beyond

Filmed in front of a UK Primary School audience, this exciting lecture explores our Solar System and Beyond. Starting with our closest neighbours, Sally and Andy explore our Sun, Moon and the planets of our Solar System. We go hunting for asteroids and take a look at how gravity works on the International Space Station with Tim Peake. We look at the different kinds of jobs needed for space, it's not all about becoming an astronaut. We investigate how big Jupiter is compared to the Earth using a balloon and see how far away it would be to the Sun and Earth in relation to the City of Liverpool.

 

Santa's Space Vacation

Recorded live on December 15th 2020 with over 2600 school children from across the UK and Italy. We take Santa on a tour of the Solar System so he can take a socially distanced holiday after the big day! Stay tuned to see where the children voted to send Santa.
