STUDENTS from an Ascot school had the opportunity to spend an afternoon exploring the wonders of the solar system.

The students from years 1-6 at The Marist School were given the opportunity to explore ‘Starlab’, an inflatable planetarium from the Look Out Discovery Centre in Bracknell after a visit on March 14.

The students experienced an interactive journey through space, examining stars, planets and constellations.

Mrs Caroline O’Sullivan, a Year 3 Teacher who led the activity said: “The girls thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon.

“The Starlab brought the excitement of Space Exploration into our school!”
