Saturday 28th January 2017 was the annual Keighley girl guides interest day held at the University academy campus, at Green Head Lane. Groups of guides from all across the Keighley area spent a full day of activities.
Keighley Astronomical society conducted three Rocket making and launching sessions, during the course of the day, where the subject was space exploration and rockets. Each student constructed her own paper rocket. They were tested in flight with a compressed air launcher. The students whose rocket travelled the furthest were presented with a society medal.
