It’s going to be a blast! Astronaut Abby and our friends at The Mars Generationare about to launch their third annual mission with their #TrainLikeAMartianchallenge. This is a week of non-stop fun activities that show the importance of STEAM skills (science, technology, engineering, art, maths) in educating the next generation and preparing them for an exciting future. You could even win some cool space and STEM prizes. Skip to the end for our offer, it’s out of this world ;-) 

Here’s what you need to know. Train Like A Martian 2018 runs from May 14-18 and is a must for anyone interested in space including students, teachers, schools, sports teams and community organisers. All you have to do is sign up and follow the activities posted on their blog and social media pages. The tasks are inspired by NASA’s Train Like an Astronaut program – how cool is that???

We’re proud sponsors of the 2018 event and can’t speak highly enough about the work Abby and the team are doing to promote STEAM skills and inspire young people to dream about exploring space. There are lots of cool daily prizes on offer as well as the GRAND PRIZES (Arckit and Lottie Dolls). This means you’re in with a chance of winning one of four Arckit 180 architectural model design sets ($170 value) to create your very own dream home or Mars space station.

Don’t want to miss out? We’re running an “astronomical” 30% discount off our Arckit 180 and 360 kits for one week only.The offer ends on the 20th May! Explore the Arckit range here.
