Exploring the Wonders
of the Heavens, through astronomy and science clubs in schools
The aim of this project is to stimulate interest, to inspire and to educate teachers and students in astronomy. This will be achieved by establishing Astronomy clubs in Schools or astronomy sections within existing science clubs. The project aims to encourage students of all ages from both public and private schools to form Astronomy Clubs. Workshops on different astronomical topics will be conducted according to the students’ age, e.g. solar system, gravity, origin of the universe, by handing out/using various materials, e.g. handouts, booklets, telescopes and by performing practical science demonstrations with the students.This project also hopes to stimulate discussions about current and future astronomical concepts and questions, such as life on other planets.
