Astronomy and space for kids.
Astrokyds is a group for young astronomers (6 - 14 years) run by some of the LAS members.
It is held once a month on Friday evenings.
Activities include simple experiments, audience participation, demonstrations, show and tell,
quizes, mythology of the constellations and, if clear, some real observing.
The aim is to kindle the interests rather than to provide a formal course in astronomy.
Even some of the parents have been caught listening and in one case taking notes.
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.
This is on Coppice Row (the main road between Abridge and the roundabout on the Epping New Road).
St Mary's Church Hall is between the new Village Hall and Piercing Hill.
Click on the "Find us" tab above for more details.
There is a car park at the front of the hall.
We do not meet in August or April, even astromoners need some time off.
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 email me. Replies may take a few days as I only run this site part time.
