Exploration of Mars

UK Space AgencyOverview

We have produced a range of free materials as part of the ‘Full STEAM Ahead’ in partnership with the UK Space Agency Aurora programme for the robotic exploration of Mars.

The European Space Agency and UK Space Agency plan on developing the technologies needed to search for life on other planets and eventually send humans to explore deep space.  To begin with robots will be used and developed to explore planets. These modules will focus on providing missions to Mars, the search for life and the development of human colonies on Mars.

About the UK Space Agency Education Grant

The UK Space Agency are delighted to be able to support these projects, which represent a diverse selection of cross-curricular activities that meet it’s education objectives in encouraging children to take up STEAM subjects, raise awareness of careers in space-related areas, and raise awareness of the UK’s exploration programme.

Dr James Davies MP Supports G2G Communities “I am very proud to support G2G Communities and would like to thank you for the dedication you have shown to the community of Rhyl, the outreach work also ensures that the benefits of this organisation are not only felt in Rhyl but throughout the Vale of Clwyd. It is encouraging to see that you are able to target the most hard to reach members of the community and offer them opportunities they may not have had access to or felt able to engage with previously.” – Read the full article >

Sandie on the New Skills, New Life Course “I have only been at G2G Communities for a short time but have gained valuable experience in computer skills. All the staff has been friendly and helpful. It has not only improved my computer skills, but has also helped me with my own self confidence. If anyone was to ask if doing this course was worth it I would certainly encourage them to do it.” – Read the full article >

Liam on the Emergency First Aid Course “The Emergency First Aid Course was a very useful option as it only lasted one day and gained me a qualification which lasts 3 years. The tutoring was very good and grabbed my attention all the way through. I would recommend this course to anyone who is given the option to do it, 10 out of 10” – Read the full article >

Charles on The New Skills, New Life Course “I have learned a lot here, all the one to one support has helped me learn quicker and better, any problems I have had they sit down with me and talk it over, which personally I find easier to handle rather than someone standing in front of a class and just dictating to me. This course has helped me to get job interviews, has given me confidence to ask questions and get answers, I am very glad to have been on this course.” – Read the full article >
