On 26 February, Dr Sohan Jheeta brought in samples of the moon from the ‘red box’, one of only four touring boxes of Moon rock. Inside the box was lunar sample 230 along with meteorites from the Moon and Mars!

Students had time to look at the rocks in detail and were given a challenge to draw one of them. Students were then given a tricky quiz to test their knowledge.

It was a fantastic opportunity for our students to be in the presence of an iconic piece of history.
