Moreton Astronomers in Cork

Moreton Astronomers in Cork

Four astronomers – Jenny Billing (U6), Chloe Whittaker (L6), Maddie Rolfe (L6) and Holly Dempster-Edwards (U5) – visited Cork and the surrounding areas, at the most recent meeting of the six European schools which participate in the Comenius Project. The project is European Community Grant-funded and involves schools from Portugal, Poland, Ireland, the UK and France. It hopes to achieve an increased interest in Science, especially astronomy, the writing of short stories and film scripts based around the theme of asteroids, and the making of a film, as well as learning about each other’s cultures and making new friends.
