Robertson High Students and Staff along with Niles Rotarians put together an “Astonomy Night” where the elementary school students were able to explore different stations building tools or crafts related to Astronomy. The high school students from Robertson worked diligently all night assisting the elementary school students. Putting together telescopes and helping these youngsters explore this field was literally all fun and games. We send out a big thank you to the generous students of Robertson High that made this event possible with the help of their fearless leader Paul Barry!
Here’s what Paul Barry, Service Learning & Leadership Coordinator at Robertson High had to say about the evening:
On Thursday, April 19th students from Robertson High School in conjunction with Niles Rotary Club put together Astronomy Night at Blacow Elementary. Our job was to put together educational, but fun activities for the kids that had to do with astronomy. The overall experience was heartwarming for us at Robertson. Astronomy night made us realize just how open minded children are, and we saw just how much they enjoyed learning. The children and parents who attended Astronomy night were very friendly and welcoming as were the members of the Niles Rotary Club. We appreciate Niles Rotary’s organization of the event and those who attended Astronomy Night and look forward to similar opportunities.
What a great event! They want us to come back in the Fall – good work folks!
