Schools competition to celebrate 50 years since Apollo landings

School science suppliers Empiribox are launching a moon hotel design competition for key stage two students

To celebrate 50 years since man first landed on the moon, Empiribox have launched a moon hotel design competition for key stage two pupils.  

Pupils are tasked with designing a poster or pamphlet that advertises their moon hotel and explains the ground-breaking science behind it.  

The competition wants the winning lunar lodge “to employ weird and wonderful features” that would make holidaying on the earth’s moon possible.  

This exciting competition will help teachers to bring the science of the Moon landing to life, inspiring the next generation of explorers, engineers and astronauts.

The winning school will have the chance to win a free subscription to Empiribox which will offer equipment, learning resources and training. The winning pupil will get prizes from the European Space Agency including a build-a-space-robot kit and a solar-powered rocket.  

Empiribox Founder Dan Sullivan said: “The historic Apollo 11 landing on July 20, 1969 changed history in an instant, paving the way for future exploration and sparking curiosity in children everywhere. This exciting competition will help teachers to bring the science of the Moon landing to life, inspiring the next generation of explorers, engineers and astronauts.”  

Empiribox have created a video featuring Tim Peake to inspire pupils with their design, which can be viewed on Vimeo here.

The closing date for the competition is June 14. To enter, visit the Empiribox website at empiribox.com/moon-hotel
