Send a postcard to space

The Science Museum Group has partnered with Club for the Future and Blue Origin on a project to inspire the next generation of space explorers.

Your class can take part in an incredible opportunity to have their ideas travel to space and back.

Ask your students to write or draw on one of the postcards their vision of what they would like to find in space that no-one has ever seen before.

Bring the postcards to the Science Museum on the day you visit and post them in our out-of-this-world postbox outside The Han Rausing Lecture Theatre on Level 0. This postbox was designed by students from a local primary school and made by our technicians here at the museum.

Club for the Future will then launch the postcards on one of Blue Origin’s New Shepard rockets up into space before returning them to Earth!

These will then be posted back to your class, each stamped ‘Flown to Space’.
