Cambridge Science Centre lent us a real spacesuit like the one Tim Peake wore in the Soyuz rocket on the way to the International Space Station.
We took part in the Space to Earth Challenge. Altogether, members of the public space hopped and cycled
into the stratosphere
We gave out 500 science at home goody bags. Thanks to sponsorship from Gloucestershire Engineering Training
Have a look at how our local paper, the Gloucester Citizen, covered the event:
In 2017, young volunteers from the Aston Project helped us to make CD hover cars and to test catapults. Meanwhile in another room we engineered towers from spaghetti and marshmallows and explored a ripple tank and an air track.
We engineered ping pong ball runs
We made till roll solar systems
This year's goody bags included
a new competition and
a template to make a sun dial
In 2019, thanks to funding from the Institute of Physics, we took our new pendulum exhibit and gear wall to the festival. In addition, young volunteers from the Aston Project helped us to give out our goody bags and engineered ping pong ball runs.
