A day amongst the stars for the girls at STEM Camp!

By on Aug 2, 2017 in Blog |

On the last day of the STEM Summer Camp for girls the participants were treated to a day of Astronomy with Dr Grant and Mrs Kim Mackintosh.

The girls first found out all about the Sun, and how it isn’t as serene as it first looks. They then learned about comets and asteroids, and used the microscopes to find their very own micro-meteorites to take home with them.

Students then took part in a ‘Stargazing’ tutorial, so that they can take their own family stargazing – the perfect activity for a Summer night!

The Summer Camp finished with a presentation event for the girls and their parents, where their achievements over the past few days were recognised.
