AfRIS Visit


On 24/4/18 we got a visit from a man called Scott Marley he is an astronomer which means he studies space! AfRIS stands for Astronomy for Remote and Island Schools. He came for the whole day. Astrology and astronomy aren’t the same thing astronomers get annoyed when other people say astrology is the same thing as astronomy because, astrology is star signs and astronomy is the study of space so it the opposite thing. At the end we had some fabric on some poles in a circle and he put a really heavy ball in the middle then he rolled some marbles as planets. it was really fun.
