Class 2 Visit Jodrell Bank

14 November 2018 (by Nicolas Carter (ncarter))

Class 2 went on a visit to Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre.

We looked at the huge Lovell telescope and found out that it can move around in a circle on railway tracks and can also be pointed at different angles into the sky. We also went inside a planetarium and found out about the different planets, moons and constellations. Did you know the sun is a huge star? We took part in a workshop and learned all about the British astronaut Tim Peake who spent six months on the International Space Station. We then made our own rockets and launched them into the air.
