Astronomy Projects and Potluck

Below, under separate blog posts, you will find four astronomy projects that the fourth grade students at Mossy Oaks Elementary School put together in celebration of the International Year of Astronomy.
To showcase these projects and telescopes that the students made, as part of a grant received by the Northern Beaufort County Public Education Foundation, the fourth grade team hosted a family potluck.
The original plan was to have members of the Oglethorpe Astronomical Association join us with their larger telescopes but sadly it rained all day and night. Despite the bad weather we were thrilled with the turn out of students and parents (over 100 folks in attendance).
The feedback we received from parents and students was overwhelmingly postive and we hope to do something similar in the future.

Mrs Heaton congratulations on what looks to have been a highly successful night. Obviously the weather conditions conspired against you but 100 parents that is phenomenal and I have never had anywhere near that level of parental support for anything that I have been involved in like that in New Zealand. Congratulations and I can't believe the amount of food that people brought!
