8th July

Blackrock Castle Observatory’s annual summer space camps begin today and will run throughout July and August. Over the next two weeks children between 8-12 years old will build and launch their own rockets, learn about the basics of space science and the solar system along with the chance to remotely use a telescope in the Canaries.

Also for the first time children between the age of 5-7 will be able to participate in a junior space camp which takes place 2 & 16 August.

For more information on any of the camps phone 021 4357917 or email info@bco.ie and make sure to follow @blackrockcastle on Twitter.
