Tim Peake - Question Time

07 Feb 2016

Tim Peake's #CosmicClassroom live link-up: the highlights

6th February 2016 at 14:00

It was a simple question from 5-year-old Harry to British astronaut Tim Peake which revealed the magic of the #CosmicClassroom event this week.

Major Peake floated over to the window, through the weightless environment of the International Space Station, and answered: “I can see that we are coming up on the coast of Africa…it’s magnificent to see from space.”

The live link-up, watched by more than 400,000 pupils around the world, was the brainchild of Helen Ward. The TES reporter contacted the UK Space Agency in September 2014 with the idea that Tim Peake could inspire a generation of children by giving a live lesson from space.

It took a collaboration between the UK Space Agency, the European Space Agency, NASA and the TES Global team to make Helen's idea reality. They put on a special screening for 300 pupils at the World Museum in Liverpool, presented by space medicine scientist Dr Kevin Fong.

Video questions were sent in from 7,000 pupils and a lucky few were picked to speak to Major Peake. The 20-minute conversation was broadcast for free through the TES website. People from 57 countries including the USA, Japan, New Zealand, Kuwait, China, Nigeria and Iceland tuned in.

This is what they saw.

We recorded our own questions to Tim and we sent them to Cosmic Classroom.

Unfortunately we were not invited to the live event in Liverpool but we were able to watch the live event in our classroom. 

We also started creating our own space posters. 
These will be used to advertise our Science Space Week.

I was very lucky to be able to spend some time with 3MJ during this cosmic classroom event! 3MJ are both space maestros and superb artists! What a talented bunch! Their work is really amazing... in fact it's "out of this world!!!". I'm looking forward to seeing their space posters on display throughout the school! Mrs Buckley
