Whether you are a school wanting to add something a little different to your science offering; a Brownie pack, Cub or Scout group aiming for your ‘Astronomy’ badges; or a U3A, WI or Rotary group looking for a fun, educational workshop, UK Astronomy has a session for you.

A sample of some of the workshops that UK Astronomy offer:


Solar Workshop

Would you like to see the surface of the Sun?

View sunspots, eclipses and perhapse even catch a glimpse of a solar flare?


Book a solar workshop and UK Astronomy can provide the equipment and expertise to allow you and your students/group to view the sun safely.


Our Solar System

This workshop uses inflatable planets, Sun and pictures our members have taken from their own gardens.


To give you a hands on demonstration of how you can see our nearest neighbours, with some fun facts about them thrown in




Most teachers are not experts on space and astronomy, but they don't have to be.  UK Astronomy can provide the expertise in a way that will excite and inspire your pupils.

For Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Cubs, Scouts and Beavers we can tailor a workshop  to cover the content necessary for gaining the Stargazer and Astronomy badges. The workshops are a combination of talks, video footage and hands-on activities.


Costs and length of sessions can be negotiated over a cuppa to suit the size, funds and locality of your group.
