Year 7 Star Gazing

Lisa Dixon —

Over the last few weeks the Year 7 students and staff had the opportunity to go to the Observatory for a session with Amadeo....

To tie in with our Science Focus this term and with the discussions on Matariki, we had the opportunity to meet with Amadeo and other Science Communicators at the Observatory. Even though most nights were cloudy, we were lucky to have the expertise of Amadeo and his helpers to inspire and wow us with their passion and knowledge of the universe and Planet Earth and Beyond.

It was a great night learning about the science of our universe and the questions that are still unanswered... more questions than answers.... and I was so impressed with the questions and discussions that followed from students fascinated by the night sky and beyond.
