GET SPACE! is an annual activity day for schools. Children are inspired in STEM by engaging with a variety of space-theme talks and activities, and attend a talk by our Patron, Helen Sharman.
Events take place each June at Broadwater School, Godalming GU7 3BW and are FREE for participating schools, each of which may bring up to 20 KS3 children.
We regret there will be no event in 2019.
