The postcards themselves offer material that will stretch students’ vocabulary and scientific literacy. Especially:
Follow Iguda, under the watchful eye of Tanno obviously, on their intergalactic explorations. This time they travel outside of the solar system. Find out what your friends discover as they visit stars, galaxies, exoplanets, dark matter, and even a black hole!Learn MoreSchools Package

KS3 Programme of Study:
- gravity force, weight = mass x gravitational field strength (g), on Earth g=10 N/kg, different on other planets and stars; gravity forces between Earth and Moon, and between Earth and sun (qualitative only)
- our sun as a star, other stars in our galaxy, other galaxies
- the light year as a unit of astronomical distance
- the turning effect of a force
- forces being needed to cause objects to stop or start moving, or to change their speed or direction of motion (qualitative only)
- change depending on direction of force and its size
- non-contact forces: gravity forces acting at a distance on Earth and in space
- light waves travelling through a vacuum; speed of light
- the transmission of light through materials: absorption, diffuse scattering and specular reflection at a surface
- colours and the different frequencies of light
- conservation of material and of mass
- changes with temperature in motion and spacing of particles
KS4 Programme of Study:
- Many of the Working Scientifically concepts, such as historical development of ideas and interconverting units
- electromagnetic waves, velocity in vacuum; waves transferring energy; wavelengths and frequencies from radio to gamma-rays
- the main features of the solar system.
