Children arrived, excited for the evening ahead! They then split into three teams -Team Peake, Team Aldrin and Team Armstrong. Each team then rotated around three different activities.

Does the surface of a planet affect the size of the crater produced? Children enjoyed investigating this using flour, rice and sugar.

The second activity was art based. Children enjoyed creating their own nebulae pictures using pastels and chalks.

The third activity was with with an astronomer from Warwick University. Unfortunately these was lots of cloud cover so, instead of using our telescope to look at the stars, we created the solar system to scale.

Finally we all got an iPad and went outside stargazing using the Star Walk app.

We then all came back inside and warmed up with hot chocolate while watching Space Chimps.
