- introductory talks about astronomy, cosmology and the solar system
- outdoor sessions looking at and learning about the night sky
We work with Andover Scout and Cub groups, most recently 23rd Andover to help the cubs and scouts earn the Astronomy Activity Badge. In the first two sessions they learnt about the solar system, stars and constellations and how to make a telescope. In the third session the group looked at the night sky using members’ telescopes and binoculars. By the end of the sessions all the cubs and scouts were able to find the pole star, identify constellations and talk about planets, asteroids and the solar system and had earned their badge.
