Three Minute Learning is an online resource for schools that locates spaceflight firmly within modern culture. At the heart of 3ml are hundreds of short, punchy stories on space, science, engineering, arts and society. A growing number are based on interviews with Principia personnel, including Tim Peake.

Repeated use of 3ml guides pupils to become active rather than passive readers. Progress can be tracked and used to direct teaching and support. Engagement and achievement are rewarded. Features from computer games and social media motivate pupils at all levels of attainment.
