Year 3 visit Cranbrook School to learn about the solar system

Marlborough House Year 3 students came for a tour of our scale model solar system as an introduction to their science topic about Earth and space.

They walked around the model which reaches from our school observatory up to Cranbrook Primary school and they looked at the telescopes which are housed in the observatory. They were very impressed by the size of the Alan Young telescope, which is currently being used by CADSAS, the Cranbrook Astronomical Society, to provide research data on variable stars for a nationwide public science project. Some of this data has already been published in a scientific paper with CADSAS as one of the paper’s named authors!

CADSAS also visited the school on Monday lunchtime with their telescopes to give students the opportunity to view Mercury in its transit across the face of the sun. Quite unbelievably, the weather was on our side! Students managed to view the silhouetted planet from the quad lawn.
