Updated 29th May 2015
The Bathurst Observatory Research Facility has the pleasure in announcing that it can now offer assistance in the development and implementation of educational programs to cater for the needs of school groups.
This assistance can be offered to Field trip or Excursion sites wishing to develop or adapt educational programs to meet the needs of teachers, schools and students. Remember, building or owning a site is only half of the educational design. Sites also needs to understand how to build knowledge and create ongoing and lasting relationships with schools.
We offer school groups the chance to be taught astronomy by the only astronomer in the region trained in primary school teaching, with over ten years of actual astronomy educational teaching and research!!! Rather than having to undertake training and trying to operate telescopes yourself, we do all the work for you, and can offer suggestions for prior and post learning. So in essence, we do everything!
We offer the only Earth and Space, Astronomy program that actually is taught to the NSW Australian curriculum needs! Our programs can cater for stage 2 to stage 5 students.
For more information and available dates and times please email. Teachers, note that we also have regular open viewing nights! Come out and trial the program before bringing the class!
