Last Summer we were asked if we could assist with the launch of a GCSE Astronomy Course at Springwood High School, King’s Lynn. We were happy to do a 30 min presentation to introduce the wonders of astronomy to year 10 pupils. This resulted in over 40 pupils attending and 30+ of these signing up for the two year course.
Since then we have assisted staff by providing practical observing sessions and sharing our knowledge with the pupils once a week during November and December when weather permitted. We will continue to do this next Autumn when the dark skies return.
So we were very pleased to receive this thank you from Matt Adcock, lead teacher on the Astronomy course.
“I’d like to thank you and your colleagues for all that you’ve done supporting the new Astronomy course at Springwood High School. We certainly would not have had as much interest in the course without your input and although the weather has been against us I know the students have enjoyed the practical activities immensely.”
Outreach is what we do and I like to think we do well.
