Event description


The UK Association for Science and Discovery Centres and the UK Space Agency are delighted to announce that they will once again join forces to bring the latest space science to children and families across the UK.

Following on from the huge success of ASDC's Destination Space education programme, the UK Space Agency is supporting ASDC to create new space resources that will inspire families and school-children with the exciting science and engineering of future space missions, including UK Spaceports and space launchers, the new James Webb Space Telescope, the ExoMars mission and satellite applications.

The Programme Vision: To engage, inspire and involve families with school-age children, school groups and communities across the UK with the amazing stories and innovative science and engineering of the UK’s world-leading space sector, especially focussing on UK spaceports, satellite applications and space exploration.

The Programme Mission: To create hands-on activities, school workshops, a family show and other resources to bring alive the new UK spaceports and launchers, innovative satellite applications, and areas of UK space exploration including the 50th anniversary of the first moon landing, the James Webb Space Telescope and ExoMars, and to select and train Science Centres and Museums across the UK to deliver these to schools, families and communities nationally.

We are now seeking 14 Science and Discovery Centres and Science Museums across the UK to partner with us for this exciting new programme. This Bidders Conference Call will give you an opportunity to ask any questions as you prepare your bid.

We are asking the 14 selected UK science centres to leverage their exceptional talents in engaging families with science in a fun and engaging ways, as well as their relationships with press, PR, universities and other partners to publically celebrate space science in a way that works for them and their family and school audiences.

Each centre will be given a host of resources, including a bespoke set of equipment, a new and bespoke Destination Space family show, staff training at two residential training academies, a training manual and a series of hands on activities for 'meet the expert' sessions. Centres will also be given a marketing pack with the branding and associated assets, and resources via the Destination Space website.
