The adventure will consist of six ‘episodes’, each with a new science-based challenge for the students to complete. All participants who successfully complete each challenge in the adventure are rewarded with an online digital badge endorsed by one of our partners.

Each episode will be created in partnership with some of the UK’s most brilliant space science organisations, including the UK Space Agency, The Met Office, The Science Museum, The Royal Observatory, Young Rewired State and NASA Mission X.

It will run over the second half of the autumn term, October-December 2015.


Thanks to funding from Arts Council England, Garfield Weston, The Paul Hamlyn Foundation and Foyle Foundation The Astro Science Challenge is free for primary schools and children aged 7-11 throughout the UK.
