Thursday 27th & Friday 28th April 2017
Thanks to all year groups for their wonderful listening in the mobile Starlab planetarium - this timed perfectly with images of Saturn being sent back from Cassini. We all learned about the different asterisms and now know how to find Ursa Major and the north star. Elements enjoyed linking asterisms to the Ancient Greeks and their knowledge about this was impressive. A special thanks to Jim from the Discovery Centre Bracknell for giving ten presentations in two days. For budding astronomers, the Science Centre in Winchester and Jodrell Bank, Manchester are both great places to visit. Per ardua ad astra!
