Getting lost in the universe
PARK Farm Beavers hosted the district’s star party. On Saturday seven colonies travelled to Kingsnorth primary school for an afternoon of space activities. More than 100 Beavers and their leaders were split into small groups for different tasks ranging from painting planets and exploring how rockets work to using a balloon on a string and looking at telescopes. They also discovered they could study Ashford parish church clock tower from the village by telescope. During his talk, Drew Wagar from the Ashford Astronomical Society showed a scale model of the universe and described various stars and planets.
