Bromsgrove Editorial 23rd Mar, 2020

A STARDOME was brought to South Bromsgrove High School to teach students about space and the solar system during British Science Week, writes Shivani Chaudhari.

Pupils from North Bromsgrove, Bromsgrove School, St John’s Middle and Alverchurch also joined in the fun for sessions in the ‘pop-up’ planetarium.

The visit was sponsored by the Ogden Trust and Keele University for the week which ran from March 6 to 15.

Ogden outreach officer Scott Walker, who took along the Stardome, spoke about his work searching for exoplanets and students also got to explore the universe and its origins.

South Bromsgrove High School’s head of physics Steve Clarke said: “We’re just very grateful for the generosity of the Ogden Trust and their ambition to support physics in schools.

“It is a great opportunity to inspire students and get them interested in the science of space.”
