Thank you to everyone who took part this week! There was so much knowledge on display - I can see many of you had watched the NASA video and also read the responses of our experts!
Stars were awarded to posts who described a space job, and then linked this role to one or more BNC skills.
Our Primary winner is convivial_beaver from Hillyfield Primary Academy, who explained the importance of reasoning for a space scientist, using very clear reasons themselves! Well done!
Our Secondary winner is powerful_robin of Ormiston Park Academy. They connected all four BNC skills to the job of a space-suit designer (inspired by Bonnie Posselt, perhaps!) and gave comprehensive reasons to support these connections. Well done!
The next competition will be posted shortly!
There are lots of jobs in the space industry, as well as being an astronaut. By hearing from our experts, you might have already heard about what it's like to be an astronaut, or a flight director, or a space doctor, or a scientist, or an engineer.
You can also watch a short video for students on space jobs here to help you learn more.
So this week's challenge is to:
- Choose one job to do with space (maybe one that you'd like when you're older!)
- Choose which of the Burnet News Club skills below would be MOST important in that job, and explain why.
Scepticism means to doubt what you see or read and ask questions to find out the truth for yourself.
Reasoning means to give reasons to support your view.
Speaking up means to say what you think confidently and clearly.
Open-mindedness means to see things from other points of view.
