Year 6 Space Talk

As part of our Space topic, the children in Year 6 were treated to a visit from Mr Brown, who delivered a presentation about some exciting new developments that his company are currently focusing on - Surrey Satellite Technology. As an expert in the field, he was able to discuss what a satellite is, how we benefit from this technology on a daily basis and the need to continue to pursue technological advancements in an aid to clean up Space! The children also explored a variety of key components that ensure a space craft works effectively e.g. strong, light weight materials that will prevent the satellite from freezing. We are very grateful that Mr Brown was able to take the time to share his passion with the children and bring our ‘out of this world’ topic back to Earth with a very real and tangible job role that they could aspire to.
