School Teacher

The UK Astronomy event Ross and team ran at my school was amazing, and one of the easiest after school events I've had the pleasure of organising as a teacher. Ross was flexible and wanted to ensure there would be the right level of information for all ages from 2 to 70+ as pupils were invited to come with family members.

The evening was the perfect balance of information and participation, with a talk to start including interactive props, before heading outside to use their impressive range of scopes (Ross had also helped us find a free stargazing App to download which was on standby should we have had that dreaded cloud cover!)

We even organised the event along with a PTA fundraiser selling hotdogs, hot drinks etc which we could use to further invest in science equipment. Bonus!

It was one of those events that reminds you why you became a teacher - a hall buzzing full of families inspired and learning together. What more can any teacher ask for?

We have been working with Ross & Frankie since the very early stages of the charity. It has been a joy to see them grow and evolve both the charity and variety of ways they reach and inspire budding astronomers. We have worked on a number of projects together including the annual Stars in the Park which is a regular and popular feature at our Parklife Weekend in August, we created a special Moonday event to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the landing on the Moon, we’ve co-hosted virtual events and been involved with a number of UK Astronomy’s outreach events.

It’s always a joy to work with Ross & Frankie, their passion and enthusiasm infiltrates every aspect of our partnership work, which results in events that are professionally organised, run to an exceptionally high standard and most importantly brings the excitement of the universe directly to our community, with engaging, knowledgeable, approachable volunteers and activities. No idea is too big or too small – quite literally, reach for the stars – Ross & Frankie will do everything they can to ensure your dreams are met.

Working with UK Astronomy has allowed us to help engage more people with our parks from a totally different perspective. Our Stars in the Park events are really popular as the talks are always engaging, captivating and fascinating for everyone. The team at UK Astronomy are so great to work with, offering lots of exciting new ideas and are really flexible. We look forward to continue to work with them and to inspire people to get outside and explore the skies!

TGP NOMINAL

Our first involvement with UK Astronomy was at a Free Comic Book Day event in 2017. After interviewing Ross for TGP NOMINAL, we realised that UK Astronomy and TGP NOMINAL were trying to achieve similar goals. On the back of this, Ross agreed to conduct a one off Sky Guide for us and his personality was the perfect fit for the podcast. Four years on, Ross is now our Resident Astronomer. TGP NOMINAL are proud to collaborate with UK Astronomy and to call Ross & Frankie friends.

My autistic son has had an obsession with all things space related since the age of 2 years old. UK Astronomy is a phenomenal charity whose facebook group community has provided him with so much support. As a family, we are proud to support such a fantastic cause in inspiring others to go deeper with their interest in the skies.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

What a fantastic organisation and deserving charity. It has been an absolute pleasure to assist Ross and Frankie at UK Astronomy by providing our services and supporting the charity by developing a new website.

We look forward to providing ongoing support as UK Astronomy's website continues to grow and evolve.
