Space Jobs

Aimed at pupils aged 7 - 11, this workshop provides an opportunity for pupils to develop knowledge and understanding of the different jobs available to people who enjoy space and science through class games, quizzes, and discussion. Pupils learn what a stereotype is and discuss gender stereotypes relating to jobs in science, technology, engineering, and maths. Pupils assess their own skills and qualities and develop an awareness of the skills and qualities of others around them.
