Sun|trek : Here Comes the Sun
Helen Mason, FRAS, has been awarded an STFC Public Engagement Fellowship.
Helen's project will capitalise on her diverse range of current activities to develop a lasting legacy of her work with schools (the Sun, space (Tim Peake) and art).
The main objective is to inspire students to engage with science activities, with a view to exciting their scientific curiosity through cross-curricular activities (science/art) and fostering a long lasting interest in science.
Several professional artists are involved with the project.
A set of five focussed resources about the Sun will be developed and delivered.
These will be hosted on the Sun|trek website and promoted widely in the education sector (KS2/K3).
