The Eden Project offering weekends of space fun

January 20th, 2016

The Eden Project is carrying on from last month’s successful screening of the historic moment when the European Space Agency’s first British astronaut Tim Peake ventured to the International Space Station.

Eden has partnered with the UK Space Agency to launch Destination Space and Eden, along with 19 of the nation’s top science centres, celebrated this endeavour through an inspirational hands-on programme of experiments and demonstrations.

They are now offering more space fun with visitors being welcomed back to get involved and inspired by a variety of space-themed activities on January 23 to 24 and 30 to 31.

They are offering fantastic activities for anyone interested in all things space, whether that’s the little ones or the adults!

Aspiring astronauts can help solve technical problems using specially-designed robot arms. They can also build and fly their own compressed air rocket to understand the perils of life in space, such as asteroids and space debris orbiting the planet.

Throughout the days there will be fun presentations for all the family such as a Destination Space family friendly show, presented by one of Eden’s talented storytellers dressed in an authentic astronaut space suit.

This amazing experience aims to deliver the exceptional National Astronaut Programme that will give children, schools and families the chance to learn about Tim’s mission and space exploration.

Pam Horton, Eden’s learning and content development manager commented on this exciting program by saying:

“We are delighted to be a part of Destination Space and as an educational charity we think this is a great opportunity for people of all ages to be engaged and excited about Tim Peake’s mission and the mysteries and miracles of space.”


With our fantastic range of Cornish holiday homes, it’s never been easier to visit Cornwall and take part in this exciting experience at The Eden Project.
