Workshop17+ Years

This highly engaging introduction to astronomy provides a memorable understanding of the planets, stars and constellations of our night sky.

Popular astronomy educator Dr Paul Payne uses 3D virtual reality media to provide a history of astronomy and an exploration of different types of telescopes – some of which you’ll use to explore the night sky (weather permitting). Paul brings astronomy alive and contextualises the cosmos in a way that isn’t possible with a textbook or PowerPoint presentation.
