Engaging Young Minds Whilst Heading For The Stars
Kids in Space inspire young people through their fascination with outer-space and related technologies. We provide opportunities for young people to reach beyond the skies via our Space Cadet program. KIS aim to be active throughout Greater Manchester, working with our partners to fund and grow our Space Cadet Programme. We undertake weekly workshop activity sessions to promote STEM based skills in a continuous flow. KIS develop all our STEM ambassadors, build awareness, and are Inclusive.
The Moon landing at Broomwood Community Centre in Timperley was an amazing success despite the extremely inclement weather. Everybody had a good time, learnt a lot, at had lots to eat.
We all look forward to the project starting in local primary schools in November.

Buggy Treking – involved winding up a clockwork car and trying your luck at manipulating it carefully across a Moon landscape replica along a designated path.
Drone Landing – Roger flew the drone through a few circuits, randomly landing it on the Moonscape. If you guessed correctly where it might land you won a prize. However, everybody went home with something.
