School hall re­veals se­crets of the uni­verse

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - What’s On -

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

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

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

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