Background about the Welsh Space Strategy
The Wales Space Strategy was launched at the 2015 UK Space Conference, which took place in Liverpool on the 14th July 2015. Introduced by Colin Baldwin, CEO, UK Space and led by John Whalley, CEO, Aerospace Wales Forum introduced the UK space community to the Welsh plans that have been developed in collaboration with the UK space community. The strategy provides recommendations and an opportunity for Wales to grow its space sector and support the UK’s goal of securing 10% of the 2030 space market.
The All SySTEMs Go Project Goals
During the 27 month long project our main aims and objectives are to:
What is the All SySTEMs Go Project?
The G2G Communities CIC ‘All SySTEMs Go’ project, supported by the National Science Academy (NSA) and Welsh Government, will run between January 2016 and March 2018. It will use LEGO Education robotics and other resources to highlight the potential of STEM related education, training and employment with regard to the new opportunities expected as part of the Welsh Space Strategy.
As a LEGO Education Innovation Studio G2G Communities CIC will be using a range of LEGO; iPad, Minecraft, Kerbal Edu, and other resources to make STEM fun and exciting.
All SySTEMs Go also All SySTEAMs Go
We also refer to the ‘All SySTEMs’ Go project as ‘All SySTEAMs Go‘. STEAM is Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. G2G Communities is supporting to include our creative industries within STEM.
The All SySTEMs Go Project Details
During the 27 month long project thirty-five enrichment activities will take place in Schools, libraries and community venues with KS2/3 pupils. Professional learning activities with our experienced staff will ensure the activities are embedded into the curriculum. A big competition will be held toward the end of the project.
All of the resources produced during this project will be available free on the G2G Communities CIC website and our ‘e-learning platform’. This will include: lesson plans; curriculum resources; handouts; programmes; videos; multimedia learning resources; animated video’s; STEM related games and a variety of other teaching and learning resources.
