Astronomy and space for kids.
Astrokyds is a group for young astronomers (6 - 14 years). Activities include simple experiments, small constructional projects, demonstrations, show and tell, quizes, mythology of the constellations and, if clear, some real observing.
The aim is to inform and kindle the interests rather than to provide a formal course in astronomy. Some of the more advanced young astronomers help out with some of the talks and demonstrations.
Meetings are held on the second Friday of the month from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. at St. Mary's Church Hall. Astrokyds is shown in blue on the map (Click on the "Find Us" tab above then select the map). The car park entrance is through a gap in the hedge. We do not meet in August or April, even astromoners need some time off. Our monthly programme is listed below.
If you think your young astronomer(s) would like to join our group in Theydon Bois or you would like some advice on setting up your own group then please phone Brian Morton on 01992 815804 or just turn up on Friday evening.
