50th anniversary of Moon Landing

For those pupils still in school, why not use the last days of term to focus on Space with STEM activities? 

Apollo 50th

On July 16, 1969, three astronauts lifted off from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida on a journey to the Moon. Four days later Armstrong and Aldrin landed Apollo 11’s lunar module, Eagle, on the Moon’s Sea of Tranquility, becoming the first humans to set foot on the lunar surface.

NASA will celebrate the 50th anniversary and look to the future of space exploration. Details here.

Discovery Diaries are also offering resources here.

If your school is putting on any events, UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres will be pleased to hear about them.

Plus we have a booklist of a few titles to satisfy enquiring minds.
