Reaching for the Stars
42 students from 4 schools across London took part in their first session of their Discovery within a Week club. Students took time to explore the digital planetarium software ‘Stellarium’. Students were able to use its key features to identify planets, stars and other celestial objects. They began to learn about the coordinate system in the sky and how it is used to locate objects. They found constellations and looked at how the astrology links to astronomy. The students were really excited about coming to the club and are really keen to begin making their own discoveries!
