Scottish Friendly Children's Book Tour: Space Explorers

Applications for Space Explorers with Libby Jackson are now closed. We'll share a recording to watch on demand after the live event takes place.

Libby Jackson is one of Britain’s foremost space experts whose beautifully illustrated book is a collection of amazing real-life stories about space exploration and adventure, with stories about life-saving felt tip pens, ‘human computers’ and the lengths to which astronauts go to show they have ‘the right stuff’.

This event will appeal to all pupils who have an interest in science and space exploration. Pupils will have the opportunity to ask Libby lots of questions about anything, from writing to boldly going where no one has gone before…

Grab your space suit and jump aboard - it's time for an astronomical adventure!
