Eyes on the skies in in­flat­able astrodome

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Tesco Smash -

Chil­dren got the chance to ex­plore the so­lar sys­tem and the uni­verse last week from the com­fort of their school hall.

The pupils at Ken­ning­ton Ju­nior School in Up­per Vicarage Road were vis­ited by a team from the Univer­sity of Kent who brought along the mo­bile astrodome.

It al­lows the chil­dren to fol­low in the foot­steps of Bri­tish as­tro­naut Tim Peake and see the stars and plan­ets pro­jected on the in­side of the dome.

Year 5 and Year 6 chil­dren en­joyed the cin­e­matic ex­pe­ri­ence as part of their lessons about space.

An­other pic­ture from this event in next week’s pa­per.
