›Space and the City
A Space Village is being erected in Centenary Square, Bradford in June 2010.
Space Connections, working with the YES-NET will deliver a free event for the public, predominantly aimed at families and young people.
Through a range of space and astronomy related activities including solar observation, Martian rovers and rocket building and the Space Bus, the
visitors to Space and the City will be given information about all the educational space related activities that they can participate in as a next step along the lifelong learning ladder. They will also be given the opportunity to join a mailing list and subsequent internet forum to be advised of future events.
This pilot event will lead on from the success of the ‘Lift Off Bradford!’ campaign and will be the start of a series of public engagement activities including open lectures and demonstrations as well as the launch of a family challenge. There will also be an opportunity to 'Space Hop through the Solar System!'
