A Message From Our Chair, Lucy Hawking

One year on from the celebration of Thanksgiving for the life and work of my father at Westminster Abbey, I wanted to write and say thank you to all of you who have made contact over this past year with your memories of my father (often involving his erratic driving, his reckless love of adventures and his wicked sense of humour), photos, videos and other messages of support.

We are so grateful and hope you will stay with us as we look forward to expanding the legacy work done by the Foundation in my father’s name. It’s been a roller coaster year – we have achieved much that we are proud of and have plans to do far more over the coming years. We will continue to support the Motor Neurone Disease Association to help them fund research into the condition and find ways to support family carers and children of those affected

We will carry on finding innovative ways to make science accessible and entertaining to a wide audience and to support excellence in academic research at the highest level. And we will carry on communicating with our friends and supporters
who mean so much to us all.

The Work of The Foundation

Space Camp

Space Camp is a programme of residential experiences that you can run yourself in your own school and will immerse your pupils into the amazing world of Space Science.

The inspirational theme easily links with many areas of the curriculum and provides a wealth of fabulous learning opportunities that will ensure that these are experiences that will create memories that last a lifetime.

Primarily we hope that this will be a fabulous opportunity to enrich your Science Curriculum as well as provide time to be creative in your approach by linking Science themes to the wider curriculum. We hope to encourage and support as many schools as possible across the UK to setting up their own Space Camp programme.
