Inspire a passion for astronomy in your students
Night astronomy and stargazing incursions are suitable for all students, and their families too! Linking to the West Australian Science Curriculum, incursions begin with a short presentation about phenomenon on and around the Earth, such as: how the Earth’s axial tilt causes the seasons, the interactions and mechanics of the Earth, Moon and Sun, as well as the Earth’s position in the Solar System and galaxy.
The team of enthusiastic and engaging astronomy guides will then spend the remainder of the night observing the universe through a wide variety of different telescopes with your students. The astronomy guides have a deep knowledge of astronomical information, ranging from solar system movement and planetary science to stellar lifecycles and cosmological theory. All guides have current Working With Children Cards and maintain professionalism whilst engaging with students and adults alike.
