Where does Space Begin?
Have you ever wondered how far away space is; how far are the different things you see above your head? Join the ROG astronomers as they ascend up through the different layers of the Earth’s atmosphere to reveal what we would see at different heights.
We worked with Royal Observatory Greenwich (ROG) for the second year in a row to produce three educational science animation films to inspire young astronomers; this one aimed at a KS4/KS5 audience. The films form part of a learning resource for teachers and those wishing to understand the concepts, and are accompanied on the ROG website by downloadable curriculum-linked resources that provide more details about the topics covered.
Dhara Patel, the Astronomy Education Officer at ROG, said ‘This is the second year we have chosen to work with Slurpy Studios to create our videos. The team understand our brief and audience very well. As such they have created bright and humorous films with a distinct visual style that we absolutely love. They make the feedback process incredibly simple and are very flexible, making them a great company to work with. We are really pleased with the films this year; the blend of the visual style, colour palette and music have resulted in three fantastically animated films which we’re sure will be a hit with not only our schools audience but the wider public too.’
