This workshop show introduces a new generation to the pioneering work it took to put the first human on the moon, and will inspire students to become the explorers, engineers, designers, scientists and astronauts of the future.

Using engaging modern graphics, archival film clips, photographs and astronauts’ audio transmissions this film shares insights into the immense challenges NASA’s experts overcame by finding innovative ways to put humans on the moon and return them safely to Earth. They will learn about the importance of oxygen, water and gravity to preserve human life. Students will then take part in a mission: to design a spacesuit for their astronaut to wear on missions into space.

Students will also have the opportunity to handle objects from the European Space Agency such as a Sokol spacesuit helmet and a space food pouch.
