As the first manned mission to Mars draws nearer, UK students are being offered a unique opportunity to join the race to the red planet - by designing a space habitation module for NASA. The challenge – the first of its kind in the UK – has been launched today by Discovery Education as part of a new national STEM education programme: Generation Beyond. Unveiled at the Royal International Air Tattoo (RIAT) in Gloucestershire, the exciting initiative will deliver space exploration resources to UK schools, inspiring the next generation of innovators, explorers and astronauts to pursue STEM careers.
Change4Life, Public Health England’s campaign to help families lead healthier lives, and Disney have launched a range of new 10 Minute Shake Ups teaching materials. The initiative aims to help kids move more throughout the school day and across the summer holidays.
A recent survey of 4450 teachers by The Guardian said 82% describe their workload as “unmanageable”. So it’s welcome news that Milk Student Planner System, created by a former teacher, could save an educator two hours a week! Attendees of the Bett Show (25th - 28th January) can meet the team at Stand B325.
