Explore the solar system – and beyond!

Our planet may seem big when you’re standing on it, but it’s barely a speck when you zoom out to consider the universe. Explore our galactic neighbourhood to discover what you can find in Space, including planets, moons, asteroids and stars.

How do we know what we know about Space? Discover the history of space exploration, what’s happening now and what might happen in the future – including Western Australia’s links to Space exploration. Learn about rockets, rovers and radio-telescopes, as well as what it’s like to be an astronaut.

These resources support the WA Curriculum: Science, HASS and Design and Technology.

BONUS: includes activities, merit stickers and poster for your class
