How to be an Astronaut with Helen Sharman


Main Cathedral
03rd June 2019 10:30 - 12:30

School groups are invited to attend a unique talk with Britain’s first astronaut, Helen Sharman, on the skills required to make it into space.

Hear Helen discuss areas which pupils need to focus on in school to excel as an astronaut and inspire them to undertake careers within space exploration and STEM subjects. 
This event is suitable for Year 6 students and above.

Helen will focus on the wonder of science, talking about her eight days spent orbiting the earth and her time living and working on the MIR Space Station. 
As Helen is an inspiring and highly engaging role model for young people, many schools have named Houses and Laboratories after her – including in London, Kent, Rugby, Leeds and Hartlepool.
