Key Stage 3 Astronomy Club

Did you know there are more stars than there are grains of sand on all the beaches of the world put together? Or that only 4% of the universe is currently understood? This is an exciting time for exploring space with new discoveries and new technologies that are changing our place in the universe. In Astronomy club you will learn about and discover many wonders of the vastness of space. We are currently designing and building replica moon bases. In the past we have looked at the possibility of life elsewhere in the universe. We have learnt about the constellations and the stories ancient people used tell about them, as well as looking at what other objects can be seen in night sky and how to find them. Look forward to seeing you there, just bring yourself and your imagination.
