World Space Week is an annual event that celebrates science and technology and their impact on the development of the human condition. This years event began on the 4th October to commemorate the launch of the first human-made satellite (Sputnik 1) on October 4th 1957. World Space Week aims to educate children on the benefits they receive from space, gain public support for space programmes and encourage the use of space for sustainable economic development.
In St. Margaret’s N.S. each class focused on a different theme for Space Week 2020. The children thoroughly enjoyed participating in their space themed activities. Check out some of the photos below!
