Year 5 ‘Mission to Mars’ Steam Week

We received an incredible email from the UK Space Agency on Monday, kick-starting a whole-school STEAM Week of investigation and learning about space! They asked for our help finding out, ‘could we travel to Mars?!’ We investigated what affects how far a rocket can travel, took part in NASA’s astronaut training activities, researched and designed a healthy space nutrition bar, designed our own mission patches and investigated some mysterious martian mucus samples which were neither liquid or solid. We have had an incredible week taking part in the different activities to help determine whether we could travel to Mars!
