Space for Kids!

“If I was an engineer, I would…..”

(animation by Holly, age 11)

How will the Revolvers engage with Schools?

  • 7 PhD European students will sponsor a primary school class in different countries (Tunisia, Greece, France, Italy, Germany, Spain and UK) interacting in a monthly basis in their native language.
  • Share their experience: our PhD students will interact with the school through social networks and a blog where they will explain the reasons and objectives of their work, share photos of meetings, photos of the places they visited, show progress of their project and answer any questions that students may have. They will also visit the school and share ideas, knowledge and take part in hands-on activities about space.
  • Contest: during the academic year pupils will be offered projects before having the opportunity to enter a competition and win a prize.
