The Astro Science Challenge is almost ready to launch! Registration to take part is now open.
The Prologue Mission for you to take with your Cadets will be available on Monday 19 October, with the Space Missions beginning on Monday 2 November.
• There are six MISSIONS
Most of the Activity Plans for each mission are available to download from the ‘Team Leader Resources’ page on Makewaves– you can have a look through them now to give you an idea of what the content of your Astro Science Challenge lessons. Powerpoint presentations to accompany each mission will also be available next week.
As a TEAM LEADER, you commit to leading your CADETS through all 18 Activities in sync with the live project over six weeks. You also commit to awarding students with digital badges provided by us, on the completion of each Mission.
A ‘How To…’ document is also available to download from the Team Leader Resources Page, explaining everything you need to know about how to deliver the project.
If you choose to accept the challenge, follow the steps below:
Create a Makewaves account for FREE to register your team!
Makewaves is the secure online platform that the project is being delivered through. It is completely free to join, and it comes with no hidden commitments.
Your Makewaves account can take a couple of days to be activated, due to the necessary security checks, so we’d advise you to do this as soon as possible, well in advance of the Prologue Mission which launches on Monday 19 October.
Once you’ve signed up and had your account verified we’ll send you another email walking you through how to use your account and offer you the option of joining an online or ‘on the phone’ training session.
If you need any help or have any questions then please contact UNSA’s Mission and Communication Officer, Christie at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Otherwise, good luck! We’re looking forward to playing our space+science adventure with you!
