Scientists discuss and debate ideas continually. Aimed at pupils aged 7 - 11, this activity allows pupils to think about why we explore space. Pupils will form their own opinions, discuss ideas, and work in teams to form persuasive arguments. The session allows pupils to improve their speaking and listening skills, as well as develop their critical thinking and confidence.
