Primary school pupils across the UK are being invited to take part in an exciting new challenge to mark the start of World Space Week, which kicks off on 4th October.
“Win a Star” will give children the chance to take their place in space, by winning a star named after them and their school.
Pupils are encouraged to stretch their imagination by designing an alien! They’ll take inspiration for their designs by reading a fun story about an astronaut’s extra-terrestrial encounter and designing an alien creature that has adapted to live on a newly discovered planet.
Launched by primary school science experts Empiribox, the competition will bring the wonders of space into the classroom, sparking interest in science for children. They’ll also have the chance to see space science in action by winning a special assembly for their school.
The competition is open to all UK primary schools, and pupils have until 3rd November to submit their entries.
Empiribox Founder Dan Sullivan said:
“World Space Week is a great opportunity to bring science teaching to life in primary schools. Children are natural scientists and they are fascinated by the planets and stars. Imagine their wonder at seeing a star in their name! We hope that ‘Win a Star’ will really spark children’s interest, encouraging them to stretch their imaginations and take their place in space.”
Primary schools are encouraged to take part in ‘Win a Star’ by visiting https://www.empiribox.org/win-a-star/ and submitting their entries before 3rd November.
Empiribox works with primary schools across the UK, helping teachers to deliver inspiring lessons and fun practical investigations to engage younger children with science. Discover how Empiribox is nurturing future scientists. Visitwww.empiribox.org.

There’s nothing special about the energy we sell. In fact, it’s exactly the same energy as all our competitors provide. But there is something special about the way we do it. Where others complicate the process, we simplify it. Where others confuse customers with hidden terms, we’re an open book. And where others do all they can to make as much money from their customers as possible, we do all we can to make as little. Everything we do, we do it differently. Our customers are a privilege. One we’ll never take advantage of.
