Smart, modern and technical materials: inspired by space technology

27th November 9.30am – 4pm

Join us on a teacher development day where you can learn about modern and smart materials, all set in the context of space technology.

Develop a hands-on curriculum that embraces the STEM elements of the Design and Technology GCSE curriculum. Content will focus on the smart and modern materials and technical textiles elements of the new Design and Technology GCSE specification (across all awarding bodes) and will also be relevant to teachers wanting to develop this area at key stage 3.

The course is held here at the Airbus Foundation Discovery Space, the home of the Mars Yard where Airbus scientists and engineers are testing out the next UK effort on Mars.

As well as being able to see the ExoMars Rover and the Mars Yard testing area, participants will be able to use the interactive displays at the Centre and find out more about the materials used in space technology from an Airbus STEM ambassador.
