Following Tim Peake becoming the first British ESA astronaut to fly to the ISS in 2015, the UK Space Agency and European Space Agency put together a comprehensive education and outreach programme spanning a broad range of subjects and age ranges. It aimed to use the Principia mission to enthuse children and raise awareness of careers in the space industry.
As part of this programme, the National Centre for Earth Observation created the EO Detective materials, a classroom/home-learning resource for children aged 4-16 and their families.
