The kids were excited, but I think they were just a little too young.. i'll do it again next year when my son goes to primary school, because the kids at preschool (4 and 5 yr olds) were too young to have an interest by themselves unless their mum or dad had an interest (like my son Jacob
The teachers at the preschool were interested though, and i'm planning to go back at the start of EST next year and do an evening planet session.. i mean the kids don't really get too much out of looking at a white circle, especially since there was only 1 tiny sunspot to see, and half the kids couldn't work out closing one eye
If I had a PST, that would be a different story though!
Cool photo Mick, what scope is that, and what are you showing them? I hope that's not pointing at the sun without a filter!
Those kids look about the right age too, to be independantly interested and ask some tricky questions.
The kids at preschool are funny, you ask them if they've got any questions, and half of the kids put up their hand, and when you ask them, they have no idea what to say or what to ask.. they just want to get picked
Kids are funny sometimes
