After all the fun with the planetarium shows, a couple of us at UCLan hatched a plan to ask kids to help us design a new Space Badge for Alston Observatory. We get a lot of Cub and Scout groups visiting the Observatory, but far fewer groups of Brownies or Guides. Cubs and Scouts have Astronomer badges, and Brownies have a Space badge, but Guides don’t (sadly). But, everyone loves a good badge for their backpack/camp blanket/whatever! So, we’re asking people between the ages of five and sixteen to get creative and help us design a new Space patch that we will get made up and give out to young visitors to our Observatory. Know someone creative in the right age group? Ask them to get their pencils out! Hurry though, entries close on October 31st.
Calling all space fans aged 5-16 years old!
Use your artistic skills to design a space badge – from stars to planets, telescopes to extra-terrestrial life, create your design to inspire future space explorers.
The winning designs will be given out to Alston Observatory visitors.
The winner will receive a £30 Amazon voucher and there are books for the runners-up.
Competition closes 31 October 2021.
Ask your parent / guardian to review the full T&C’s.
