SunSpaceArt - inspiring children and igniting their scientific curiosity LIMITED
Limited Capacity filling up

The SunSpaceArt project brings together scientists and artists to run workshops in primary schools (7-11 year olds). The project, funded by STFC (Science and Technology Facilities Council), is led by Dr Helen Mason OBE. The feedback has been excellent from teachers and children, e.g. 'Today I loved this lesson because the science and art inspired me'. The resources link closely to the Science National Curriculum. Through these creative STEAM activities, the children have produced impressive, original, imaginative and beautiful art that communicates a deeper understanding of the Sun, the solar system, space travel, polar science and 'Our Place in the Universe'.
