Do You Wanna Be An Astronaut?

astronaut living and working in space! Have you got the necessary fitness? Are you
calm under pressure? Are your reaction times reach the speed of light? Problem
solving and teamwork skills to make it? Are you indeed made of the “right stuff?!”

Coupled with a highly informative look at life and work on board the International
Space Station, Jo Richardson of The Space Detectives also brings the Virtual Reality Space Walk Experience to this workshop! Find out what it really feels like to be an astronaut!
Space is dangerous, space is tough……. Come and be the best of the best……
