Space School 2019: Three day Astronomy and Space Residential at the University of Kent this August.

Space School 2019 is open to 15-18 year olds and will take place from Friday 2nd August to Sunday 4th August. Applications are now open.

Space School 2019 will be a three day residential astronomy and space science event at the University of Kent for 15-18 year olds. The event will run from midday Friday 2nd August to 5pm Sunday 4th August.

Students get the chance to work on science projects with academics and postgraduate students who do research at the University of Kent. More recently the event has focused on this project work with University researchers, covering observational astronomy with the Beacon Observatory, planetary science with the Light Gas Gun (a gun which can accelerate small projectiles to speeds of up to 7 km/s) and small solar system body research.

This year Space School will be bigger and better than ever, celebrating its 20th Anniversary, so come and join us by applying here!
