Thanks to all our partners who have helped us make this, especially the UK Space Agency for funding the creation of the App and ensuring it can remain free for you and your Cadets.
The Astro Science Challenge is a series of interactive, story-led missions designed to engage children aged 7-11 with STEM subjects. Made in collaboration with some of the UK’s top science organisations, the app is accompanied by high quality lesson plans and a series of films with guest appearances from Tim Peake. Each Mission uses examples from Tim’s mission to creatively link to the national curriculum and by completing each one, children not only unlock the next episode in the story but also earn a digital badge from organisations including the Royal Observatory, the Science Museum and the European Space Agency.
“The Unlimited Space Agency is great. Their approach to inspiring children about science is rigorous, fun and it works! I’m proud to serve with them on their mission to inspire the next generation of scientists and space explorers.” Tim Peake, astronaut
