A visit to Beachborough School, Westbury

roverOn Monday 23rd January Simon Sheridan visited Beachborough School in Westbury.  The day was spent working through a series of experiments to test soils and determine which was the most Mars-like.  Finally, at the end of the day Simon gave a talk about meteorites and the children had a chance to get hands-on with Gibeon.
