Explorers are one time hands-on astronomy and space sciences workshops.
The workshops focus on fundamentals as well as application of astronomy and space science for schools. The workshop model is for the schools who want to do an introductory astronomy education project, it’s a one-time event. The workshops are fun exercises with emphasis on group discussions and hands-on activities and they enable students to participate in an informal set-up. Students are encouraged to ask questions, to instigate curiosity and explore the universe; hence the workshops are called “Space Explorers”. The workshop aims to make students aware about astronomy, its presence and its relevance in our day-to-day life. The workshops are activities based on the following categories:
- Observational Astronomy
- Activities and Models Making
- Interaction and Multimedia
Explorer’s workshops are conducted for all age groups from anyone from child to adult. SPACE Explorers Workshops are conducted at schools, colleges, educational institutions, resident welfare associations etc., for people from all walks of life. The idea is to encourage the learning of Astronomy, and spread awareness about astronomy among the common people.
