Schools are being invited to sign up to the Cosmic Classroom event which will give teachers and pupils the opportunity to connect with Tim Peake on the International Space Station.

Being organised by the TES together with the UK and European Space Agencies, teachers are being encouraged to ask their pupils for ideas on how they would spend 20 minutes in a live, public, connect with Tim Peake.

Lord Jim Knight, chief education adviser of TES Global, the digital education company, said:

This is a once in a generation opportunity, for British school teachers and pupils to make a live connection with a British astronaut in space. We want every teacher in the country to sign up now, to make it the world’s largest schools and space science event.

The countdown to the Cosmic Classroom begins now.
