Skype chat with Class 3 from Ince CE Primary School

Nathan was invited to take part in a Skype chat about “space” with Class 3 from Ince CE Primary School. The children in Class 3 had been learning all about space and human missions to the Moon and so invited Nathan to speak a bit about the work he does and to answer some questions they had. Nathan answered questions ranging from things like “what are stars made of?” to “has a giraffe been to space?”!
