Young Astronomers March – Where is the Dark Side of the Moon?

14/03/2022 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Welcome to the 2022 Young Astronomers programme! Our theme this year is ‘Mission to the Moon’. The programme caters for all school aged students that are curious about the night sky and would like to meet other like minded people.

We had a great first session in February where we investigated the question, “Is the moon made out of cheese?” Our question helped us inspect how craters of the moon were formed on the moon and what the inside of the moon might look like. Our next session is exploring, “Where is the dark side of the moon?” so that we can investigate why we see the moon.

This is a gentle reminder that we will be able to meet under the Red Light Covid-19 protocol with possible gathering of 40 people in the Stardome facility. Please make sure that:

– Parents and children in Year 4 and up must wear masks (as they would in school) during the session

– Parents and children 12+ must scan their vaccine passes on arrival

– Register your interest through our Eventbrite link to let us know you’re coming

– Please register all attendees – parent and child! It will help us manage our numbers

– Stay at home if you’re feeling unwell

– We request that parents must actively supervise their child/ children during the session to share their learning experiences.

Please note that our next meeting will be on Monday the 14th of March 2022 at 7:00 pm. If the meeting needs to be cancelled at the last minute, we will send you a message through Eventbrite. Your patience and kindness would be much appreciated.
