The Big Sunflower Project

Started in 2011 The Big Sunflower Project encourages people to grow sunflowers as a way of raising  awareness of the rare neuromuscular conditions known as centronuclear and myotubular myopathy.  Seeds are free in return for a stamped addressed envelope and photos of the sunflowers which are used  to help promote the work of the Information Point and raise awareness of centronuclear and myotubular myopathy. This is done by adding the photos on Facebook, Twitter and Flickr and including them in  our newsletters.  To get involved email: [email protected] For further information find us on:Facebook https://www.facebook.com/thebigsunflowerprojectTwitterhttps://twitter.com/The_Info_PointFlickr http://www.flickr.com/photos/thebigsunflowerproject2013/

JOURNALS

From the classroom to the far reaches of the Universe at Victoria Primary School.

On Wednesday 3rd February 2016, Keighley Astronomical Society paid a return visit to Victoria Primary School, Keighley. The pupils of Mrs Tokarski class had a full day of Astronomy and rocket construction. In the morning the subject was ‘How big is big’. The pupils were taken beyond their classroom to the Moon, solar system and beyond to reveal a universe, which is vast, varied and beautiful. Through a series of work sheets; the making of a flip chart model of the phases of the Moon and a planisphere of the night sky, the students curiosity, imagination, and a sense of shared exploration and discovery was harnessed.The afternoon saw a rocket building and launching session, were science and technology meet. Prizes were awarded to pupils with the best designed and constructed rockets after being tested in flight. One pupil remarked “It was the best day at school ever Sir”.Keighley Astronomical Society would like to thank the ‘Craven Trust' for part funding this project.
