Kielder Observatory comes to Hipsburn

2nd March 2023
Kielder observatory workshop
Etal Class
We had a wonderful day becoming astronomers with our visitors from the Kielder Observatory!  
We went on a journey of discovery in the infatable planetarium, learning all about the planets and stars in the Milky Way. As part of our light workshop, we built on our prior knowledge of the topic to learn about different types of light- including light that is invisible to the human eye! We investigated light with practical activities using diffraction glasses, an infrared camera and ultraviolet sensitive beads.
Bamburgh Class
We had a fantastic time working with Astronomers from Kielder Observatory with their amazing inflatable planetarium and a fun science workshop  about space rocks.
