Find your inner astronomer and explore the night skies with a Planetrium show and Solar System workshop.
Brownies and Cubs will be able to watch a planetarium show in the Centre’s state-of-the-art planetarium. The show will explore the night-time stars and show the youngsters how to recognise many of our constellations and discover the ancient legends behind them. They will examine close up images of stars, as well as our sun and her family of planets in addition to learning about the phases of the moon and how meteor showers occur as well as watching the Northern Lights.
During a Solar System workshop, Brownies and Cubs will make star-themed items and learn more about our solar system. They will discover how sailors used the position of the North Star to navigate the seas and make a constellation tube to take home to spot stars with even during the daytime!
