The Astronomy Outreach program is a volunteer effort by members of the Department of Astronomy to raise public awareness of astronomy.
We have excellent facilities on campus, including a 25 seat planetarium and a 16 inch telescope. Some of our volunteers are also able to travel to your location. Demonstrations and hands-on experiences are included as much as possible, and we often have pictures of some of the latest astronomical discoveries. We are happy to work with youth or community groups as well as schools.
For younger students we suggest that volunteers come to you, as the observatory environment is not appropriate for early elementary students.
We cannot do planetarium shows during the day when the Natural History Museum is also running shows. We can however coordinate with them if your group does want a daytime planetarium show.
