The project included investigations into historical materials and present-day accounts from living female astronauts, master classes on aspects of space travel, engineering and materials, and aerial workshops leading to a performance inspired by the history of women in space.
This was a collaborative project between Scarabeus working with The Science Museum, Kingston University, Women’s Library lSE and staff at Parliament Hill School.
“I learnt many things that were really interesting. I really enjoyed the interactive work and finding the facts for ourselves from the research documents. It was overall a really brilliant project.”
