Third Astronomy Department Open Day - 23 April 2016


On Saturday 23 April we were very happy to host the first Department of Astronomy Open Day for 2016. The day was aimed at learners in Grades 10-12 who are interested in potentially pursuing astronomy as a career. During the day the learners were presented with various lectures and hands-on tutorials and practical sessions by members of the department to give them a taste of what astronomy is all about (including pizza for lunch!). In the picture below, Prof Claude Carignan is shown with our visitors after a tour of our teaching telescope.

We plan to hold another Open Day later this year in September and encourage all interested learners to sign up early!
