I could be… an astronaut

20150604_150024-2In all my workshops I try and link activities to real life STEM careers and try and spark new aspirations. It’s never to early to start telling children about all the different jobs there are out there. When we talk about space I ask the children to draw themselves as an astronaut, later they get launched on a rocket! I love the faces of these youngsters seeing themselves being launched into space…who knows some of them will probably be amongst the next generation of space explorers.
