What a great night for British Film! Sadly CIEC have no science resources even remotely connected with #12YearsASlave but we have a great primary resource for 9-12 year olds Is There Anyone Out There? which would make a great tie in to #Gravity.
This resource is based upon the quest to discover more about our solar system through space projects such as the European Space Agency's Aurora programme, and NASA's Curiosity mission seeking to gather evidence of life on the planet Mars. The children take on the role of space scientists or space engineers to discover more about Mars.
One of the favourite activities involves constructing a chocolate volcano to mimic lava flow. The pic shows a primary science 'ambassador' making the volcano (and having fun!).
