Space Food Experiment

Suitable for ages 4 to 13 years
Reception to Year 8 (P1 - S2)

There are two parts to this activity:

In Part 1 the children touch and taste the space food and make comparisons with ordinary food. (There is enough space food in the pack for everyone in the class to taste a small amount.)

In Part 2 the children rehydrate a few Space Strawberries - to determine what proportion of a normal strawberry is just water. (Different worksheets allow children of different ages and abilities to tackle this problem.)

The activity introduces pupils to:

Thinking about the practicalities of long distance space travel;

Why some foods are more suitable for space travel than others;

Why some foods last longer than others;

The amount of water in a strawberry.
