Principia Mission Space Diary
For the past four years, I've been a member of the Space Crew, working with publisher Curved House Kids to inspire over 200,000 primary-aged kids in the UK.
The Space Diary is a STEM-literacy resource which follows ESA Astronaut Tim Peake's 2015-16 mission to the ISS. It is the first book in the Discovery Diary series.
Funded by the UK Space Agency and written by Lucy Hawking, it helps kids engage with STEM learning in fun and accessible ways. I have been involved in writing and editing across the project, with particular focus on developing and authoring support materials like teaching notes.
I've loved working on two editions of the Space Diary, which was a finalist for the 2017 Sir Arthur Clarke Award for Space Education and Outreach. I never imagined I'd find myself sitting at a formal event between a satellite engineer and an environmental physicist, at a table next to someone who'd spent seven months orbiting Earth.
