#GSCAtHome presents #FromEarthToSpace

From Earth To Space

The hugely popular series of #GSCAtHome videos return for a special two-week run from Monday 12th to Friday 23rd October featuring brand new videos and some viewer favourites that’ll take you from Earth to Space!

Gather the household together every day at 10am as our team of science communicators bring you exciting activities to try at home and things to learn together. Discover what happens to the human body in space, build a Mars rover, make some tree art, and put together a tiny terrarium. Our #FromEarthToSpace videos are shared freely through our social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube) to keep you and the family inspired and enthused about science.

We also love seeing the results of your home experiments, so don’t forget to share your photos and videos with us using #GSCAtHome #FromEarthToSpace.

Get ready to build your own model rover!

Use your new knowledge of what makes a good rover to build your own model and share it with us on social media. You'll need some things from around the house like cardboard, paper, empty plastic trays, sellotape, glue, scissors and crayons, pens, pencils or paint.

The James Webb Telescope

Friday 16 October

Due to be launched into space in 2021, the James Webb Space Telescope, or Webb Telescope for short - is set to build upon the incredible results of the Hubble Telescope and see even more of the Universe. Natalie from The Planetarium team at Glasgow Science Centre will be telling us more about how it will use infra-red to capture astounding images to help scientists better understand some of the oldest objects in space.

Tiny Terrariums

Monday 19 October

Science Communicator, Jennifer is here to help us learn about water and the water cycle. Plus, you'll get to make your own tiny terrarium. To make a terrarium you will need some adult supervision, a jar (e.g. a clean, empty jam jar), some soil and sand, stones, and some small plants (e.g. succulents). We'd love to see your terrariums - share them on social media using #GSCAtHome #FromEarthToSpace.
