Year 14 Pupil Spends a Day with the Stars

Year 14 student Elizabeth Clulow spent a day filming with the BBC earlier this week.

Elizabeth is presenting a short ‘Solar System Road Trip’ film which will be aired via the red button on Stargazing live (BBC2) and via the internet on Wednesday 8 January 2014.   The film starts at the Rise monument on the M1, which represents the Sun, and travels to schools corresponding to the orbits of the planets at a scale of 46 million to 1, presenting pupils with different sized balls as representations of their planets to the same scale.
