Phoenix “Our place in space” AR tour On the North Down Coastal Path

On Sunday some of our Phoenix explorers went on an exploration through the solar system. We jumped on the train from Ballymoney and headed to Cultra. We then had a virtual tour through the “our place in space AR app” which guides you along the scaled down model of the solar system. This was designed by artist Oliver Jeffers with scientist Professor Stephen Smartt and a creative team led by Nerve Centre. The explorers walked to all of the sculptures and read the info about the planet they visited. After a wee pit stop at the Crawfordsburn Country Park Cafe they continued their walk of 10 long miles to Bangor train station.

We also had the pleasure of welcoming another new member to our quickly growing group with an investiture into the Phoenix ENSU Ballymoney.
