Destination Space

Backed by the UK Space Agency, science centres across the UK have joined forces with the European Space Agency's first British Astronaut, Tim Peake, to provide children and adults alike, from all over the UK with a unique opportunity to learn about human space flight and follow life on the International Space Station (ISS) 

The programme isn't just limited to telling Tim's story, we are also going to celebrate the amazing team behind Tim, highlighting the great and untold opportunities out there for young people across the sciences, engineering, health and space sectors.

We will be inviting families and schools to join Destination Space through a calendar of family shows, school workshops and meet-the-expert events. Just keep an eye on this page as this programme goes where no other Space programme at Dynamic Earth has gone before.....


Summer Space-Tacular

This summer is set to be truly Space-Tacular with a jam-packed programme of things for all the family and any budding astronauts. Events across the summer include a mix of Rocketry, Life in Space, the Cosmos Planetarium, double dome shows, planetary face painting and a truly out of this world photo opportunity!

Principia Schools Conferences

The UK Space Agency wants to celebrate the imaginative work linked to Tim Peake’s Principia mission that is being done by children of all ages by organising a pair of schools conferences where they can present their work to leading space experts and, if his schedule allows, Tim Peake.

These conferences will take place at the University of Portsmouth on Wednesday 2 November 2016 and the University of York on Saturday 5 November 2016. Attendance at the conferences will be free, with travel bursaries available to help with the cost of getting to the venues.
