Space Stations at Aylsham Church

Aylsham stargazers helemet 387Around 400 adults and children enjoyed the Stargazers Activity Day at Aylsham Parish Church over half term. Tony Rothe reports.

“Watch out Tim Peak we have some budding astronauts in Aylsham!” was the cry as those who came along experienced awesome flying rockets, astronaut food, a Space Training Academy, planet building, and other 'out of this world' activities as the children travelled around 15 different 'space stations' exploring the theme of space using craft, science, & technology.

The outdoor rocket launching proved to be very popular with the children (and Dads!).  A huge thank you to all our wonderful volunteers for making it such a brilliant morning.  We live on an amazing planet, part of the most incredible solar-system, in a universe which we are only just beginning to understand and explore.  I hope that just maybe we inspired a new generation of engineers, astrophysicists, and maybe even a few astronauts."
