BLC children visit the Royal Astronomical Society

Last week children from across our cluster enjoyed a visit to Mayfair to vist the Royal Astronomical Society. The Royal Astronomical Society was set up in 1820 to encourage and promote the study of astronomy and solar-system science. Children enjoyed exploring the Society’s historic collection and taking part in a workshop to learn about the life and work of Caroline Herschel. Adam from Loughborough shared what he learnt: "Caroline Herschel discovered 8 comets and was a role model as she was the first woman to be paid for her scientific work".
