Humans in space

This week we were looking at humans in space, and what we might need.

We started off packing our imaginary suitcases – there were some good answers and some not so. Welly boots highlighted, again, the lack of vocabulary, while waterproofs seemed a bit extreme!

There were some good discussions about what we did really need, and there were some unimpressed students when I told them how little they were allowed to take.

We watched some videos from the ISS (thanks, youtube!) and enjoyed thinking about floating in space.

From there a brief discussion about sending robots (who apparently need to be able to change their own oil) and solar panels – quite a few students have these on their houses, so that was a useful starting point.
