Students explore the universe at Murray Bridge Town Hall

More than 250 school students have explored the universe without ever leaving the Murraylands thanks to a Soroptimist International program.
Year three students from 10 schools came to Murray Bridge Town Hall last Tuesday for a visit to a mobile planetarium.
Inside, they learned about light pollution, the River Murray Dark Sky Reserve, the Earth’s place in the solar system, Indigenous astronomy and more.
Each student took home a small model of the Sun, Earth and Moon.
The excursion was a project of the Murray Bridge branch of service club Soroptimist International, with support from the Murray Bridge council.
In previous years the Soroptimists had given students an opportunity to attend a science magic show.
Students involved this year came from four of Murray Bridge’s six primary schools, plus Mannum, Mypolonga, Callington, Jervois, Coomandook and Raukkan.
