Programs

for Schools and Interest Groups 



The Society welcomes the opportunity to present the wonders of the night sky to children of all ages and to interested adults.

 

Programs are usually instigated by the interested school or group contacting our Education and Outreach Coordinator to discuss their ideas. A discussion will uncover the best approach for delivering an engaging and educational experience for everyone.

 

Our contribution can include:

  • Viewing of the best night sky targets through telescopes provided and guided by members of the Society. Note that best viewing opportunities occur near the first quarter of a new Moon.
  • Presentations on the many amazing objects in the night sky indoors, if the weather is not cooperating
  • A hands-on meteorite workshop
  • Mini-talks
  • Presentations

These programs are conducted at the school’s or other interested group’s premises with the venue arrangements managed by the organizing group. Society members will provide the presentations and night sky viewing sessions with telescopes as arranged.

 

The Society normally asks for a donation to cover costs and to help us raise funds for ongoing projects. We can discuss how this might be arranged.
