October 4th-October 10th
At Stamford American School Hong Kong, we are inspired by space and wanted to delve into UN endorsed World Space Week that takes place annually from October 4th-10th in celebration of the successful launch of Sputnik on October 4, 1957, the first satellite to orbit Earth. Our students from pre-primary to grade 8 will explore space through a variety of activities leading up to Space Week with a culminating 12hr event showcase.
Some highlights include:
- Grade 1 students learning more about the effects of gravity with microgravity gardens
- Grade 3 students will build and launch their rockets
- Grade 5 will construct and test human-powered rovers
- Class visits to a mobile planetarium and cross-curricular space themed lessons.
