NEW TOPIC! KS3 Science: Space
7 June @ 10:00 am - 10:50 am BST£7.50 – £39.00
KS3 Science – Space
Space, the final frontier. What’s not to love about rockets, planets, moons and the search for alien life…
These live and interactive lessons are based on the KS3 Science National Curriculum, they will help students prepare for GCSE Chemistry, Physics, Astronomy or other similar qualifications.
The lessons are typically suited to students aged approximately 10-14 years of age. Small groups (capped at 10) ensure students get the opportunity to interact with the tutor and have their questions answered.
Lessons can be taken as a whole topic (recommended) or individually, if preferred, as they are written to make sense on a lesson by lesson basis.

Lesson 3 (Mon 21 June): The Solar System – Learn about the four rocky planets, the four gaseous giants, moons, asteroids and much more.
Lesson 4 (Mon 28 June): Stars and Galaxies – Learn what makes a star a star, their ‘life’ cycles and how they are arranged in different types of galaxies.
Lesson 5 (Mon 5 July): Space Exploration – Learn about some of the most important space missions of all time including the Apollo programme, Kepler, JWST, Galileo and Voyager.
Lesson 6 (Mon 12 July): Search for Alien Life – Is there anybody out there? Learn how scientists are searching for extraterrestrial life, where the best chance of finding it is and about a few false alarms…
