Join us for an evening exploring the stars and planets on the Astrocampus, the University of York observatory.
With tailored activities, we can support Rainbows, Beavers, Cubs, Brownies, Guides and Scouts to achieve the relevant badges and develop their skills.
We strongly support the Girlguiding ethos, and advocate that careers in science and astronomy are for everyone.
Achieving your badges
Rainbows get involved with fun, hands-on activities, including making their own constellation activity with glow-in-the-dark stars.
For their Space badge, we guide Brownies through constellations, sunspots (weather permitting) and the work of some inspiring female astronauts.
Guides can get involved with interactive activities on light and space telescopes, showing girls that science and technology is for them.
We can help Beavers achieve their Space badge with a guide to the night sky and an interactive activity on the scale of the Solar System.
For their Astronomer badge, Cubs complete an interactive activity on the scale of the Solar System and explore constellations and the night sky.
Scouts can work towards their Astronomer and Astronautics badges: observing the Moon, learning how telescopes work, and exploring how astronauts live on the international space station.
