Brampton GCSE students attended one of the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures, which were on the theme How to Survive in Space. There were messages sent to the audience from Tim Peake and the students found out about the science and experience of leaving Earth and getting to the International Space Station. They also saw a range of brilliant experiments, including a hair raising hydrogen oxygen balloon explosion!
Royal Institution Christmas Lectures
The Christmas Lectures were started by Michael Faraday in 1825, and now broadcast on national television every year. The Christmas Lectures are the UK’s flagship science series. http://www.rigb.org/christmas-lectures
