Dark side of the Moon, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, examined the history of female astronauts with students at Parliament Hill School. 

Dark side of the Moon

The project included investigations into historical materials and present-day accounts from living female astronauts, master classes on aspects of space travel, engineering and materials, and aerial workshops leading to a performance inspired by the history of women in space. 

 This was a collaborative project between Scarabeus  working with The Science Museum, Kingston University, Women’s Library lSE and staff at Parliament Hill School. 

“I learnt many things that were really interesting. I really enjoyed the interactive work and finding the facts for ourselves from the research documents. It was overall a really brilliant project.”
