Celebrating Space!

There are a couple of events each year to celebrate space and space exploration so do look out for events near you and check out our blog Space themed activity ideas blog for more ways to help children explore this theme.

The space celebrations are all about encouraging people to learn more about space and space exploration and to celebrate all of the incredible achievements that have been made in this area.

They are also about celebrating STEM subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths and inspiring our young generations to pursue careers in these areas – especially Space!

World Space Week is celebrated each year in October 4th-10th to commemorate the launch of the first human-made Earth satellite, Sputnik 1, opening the way for space exploration.

National Space Day is celebrated on the first Friday in May every year.

If you have a budding astronaut at home, we hope our free space activities for children will help to inspire them even more! Keep scrolling to claim your free space themed printables…
