We’re delighted to launch our free home teaching and learning support for families with a first video featuring British astronaut Tim Peake answering children’s questions about space.
Suitable for young people aged 4-19, our subject experts have carefully selected more than 300 activities and materials available from our bank of over 14,000 free resources to support parents and carers with home learning, with a particular focus on science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
STEM Ambassador Tim Peake features in a new video where he answers children’s questions about how to become an astronaut. He reveals whether astronauts worry about loo roll running out, discusses pre-launch quarantine and COVID-19 on the International Space Station, and even suggests that one day children might be going into space.
