JINGLANG'S ACTIVITY

Space Junk Tidy Up

Jinglang is passionate about space. She works out how satellites and asteroids travel in space and what we can do to avoid crashes! Try her circus activity about oribits and hula hooping. Read her comic to find out why we need to tidy up in space and then play the space junk balancing game. Jinglang loves figuring out how things work – how and why does the balance game work?
