A sample of some of the workshops that UK Astronomy offer:
See Our Sun
Would you like to see the surface of the Sun?
View sunspots, flares and perhaps even catch a glimpse of a eclipse or planet transit?
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 that our members have taken from their own gardens, giving you a hands on demonstration of how you can see our nearest neighbours, with some fun facts about them thrown in.
This can also include a beginners guide to what you can see in the UK skies using your eyes, binoculars and of course telescopes .
Want to see planets, learn about the skies or just try out some telescopes UK Astronomy has a wide range of family friendly gear for you to use, and friendly knowledgeable volunteers.
Tie this in with our Solar System talk and you have the perfect combination for a truly out of this world experience.
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.
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.
