Our programme is evolving all the time as we improve and develop exciting workshops based around specialist equipment, often made possible through grant projects.
Topics under development include:
The Sun, laboratory techniques, astronomy / astro-imaging with our fabulous 16-inch modern telescope.
Most of these workshops will be suitable for KS3 / KS4 and will carry a price per pupil. The workshops will be incorporated in to a package including other activities.
Please contact us to discuss options.
It is with great sadness that we announce the closure of The Observatory Science Centre from 18th March 2020 until further notice.
This decision was made in the light of the current coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and recent UK government advice, which our charity has been carefully monitoring and following.
The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our absolute priority during this difficult time.
Given the uncertainty we are all facing, we don’t yet know when we will re-open. If you have booked group visits / upcoming events etc. we will be in contact when we return to work.
We sincerely wish good health for you and your families during these uncertain times and we can’t wait to welcome you back as we continue our 25th anniversary celebrations.
