A new project will inspire schoolchildren to take their fitness to new heights, thanks to funding from the UK Space Agency.
The Triathlon Trust has partnered with the UK Space Agency, Ideas Foundation and Venture Thinking to deliver the 'View from Space to Earth' project - bringing primary schools an engaging day of bike-run activity linked with the theme of Earth Observation.
Children will attend an assembly and watch a briefing video, setting their challenge, featuring Team GB Paralympian and Triathlon Trust ambassador Lauren Steadman and glaciologist Dr Anna Hogg from the Centre for Polar Observation and Modelling. Pupils will participate in their year groups throughout the day. We provide all the equipment required to participate including bikes mounted on turbo trainers to make them static. The physical activity is non-competitive, fully inclusive and suitable for children of all levels of ability.
It’s a fun event designed to inspire children to get more active and work together towards a shared goal, whilst learning about the exciting topic of Earth Observation.
Events will be delivered between January and March 2018. If you are interested in bringing this event to your school, for more information and to register your interest please email firstname.lastname@example.org
