Science Week – Astronomy Watch (13th – 20th November 2016)

scweekAstronomy Watch is an outreach programme run by the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies to coincide with Science Week Ireland. During Science Week, a number of Secondary Schools are invited to visit Dunsink Observatory and take part in Astronomy Watch.

Lectures on a wide variety of topics in astronomy are held, and weather permitting, students are given the opportunity to look through the Grubb Telescope located in the South Dome at Dunsink Observatory.

The aim of this programme is to promote science as a career path for school students and as a source of interest and excitement for everyone.

For more information on these events or to request an invitation for your school, please contact Hilary O’Donnell or Anne Grace.
