In the anniversary year of the Apollo moon landings, families can take part in astronaut training workshops where they can learn about what it takes to launch into space.

Children will have to guide bee-bot robots around a moon maze, drilling into the surface and avoiding obstacles.

They’ll also have the chance to build and test their own rockets with a mini vibration table to simulate take-off conditions before launching them for real.

And some can get the opportunity to try on special space suits used in the campus' labs.
