The mention of Space to curious young minds inspires curiosity and conjures imaginations of mystique. To pique the curiosity of our pre-schoolers that fuels interest and passion to explore and learn, Methodist Preschool celebrated World Space Week with a slew of Space-themed lessons and hands-on activities uniquely designed by each of its five centres for different levels of learners.

For the graduating cohort of K2 students, the exciting array of space-themed lessons and activities during World Space Week culminated in an exclusive live sharing and interaction over Zoom with Ms Naoko Yamazaki, Japan’s 2nd female Astronaut. Ms Yamazaki wowed the students with fascinating videos and pictures, as well as sharing personal anecdotes of her experience in Space and concluded her sharing with “Space is waiting for You!”. Afterwards, burning questions of our inquisitive pre-schoolers were answered during the interactive Q&A session. Watch video highlights of the momentous Learn-with-Astronaut virtual session:

The exclusive opportunity for K2 Methodist pre-schoolers to e-meet an Astronaut is part of Methodist Preschool Signature K2 Space Buds Programme. It is a first-of-its-kind programme designed to introduce pre-schoolers to all things Space and fire up our young minds to build interest and foundational knowledge in space, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) through age-appropriate hands-on lessons and fun activities.
