The Moon at Brentry Primary School

This week we enjoyed one of our most exciting events to date, the opportunity to see some real lunar rock – brought back to Earth from the Apollo Missions of the late 1960’s and early 70’s. Mrs Moore at Brentry Primary School had organised loan of the samples through the Science and Technology Council in London and we are able to examine these with the year 2 students, accompanied with a talk all about the Moon. We managed to squeeze in over 4 billion years of history from the “big splat” though prehistory (naturally) Classical and Renaissance scholars, lingering awhile with a short video on the Apollo 11 mission. We finished up some amazing images from the and Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter

Travelling History at the Chopsticks Club

On Tuesday evening we enjoyed an excellent talk by Chris Dobbing, founder of the Cambridge Mask Company. It was a story of fantastic commercial success; the development and successful marketing of a quality mask to protect children (and grown ups) from the pollution in Chinese cities. It was however, also rather depressing that these poor children have to endure this pollution in the first place. Nevertheless, full marks to the Cambridge Mask Company of providing an immediate solution to a global problem. We particularly enjoyed the tale of the washing machine and the potato - great stuff.
