Time & Space Zone

Time & Space Zone

From the great space race to time itself, explore the planets and solar systems and experience what it would be like living on Mars!

Space is always a fascinating topic for students – perhaps because most of us will never leave Earth. These scenes give you the opportunity to bring outer space to life, and to teach tricky abstract concepts (what happens to the Earth over the course of a day or a year? Why does our Moon look different on different days?).

You too can be an astronaut and explore the Solar System and beyond. See how robots (and maybe one day humans) traverse the surface of Mars, and experience the surface of distant planets.

All of the scenes contained within this zone are shown below:
