Be a Volunteer Member

By becoming a volunteer member, you join a vibrant community of Astronomy enthusiasts working toward raising awareness of Astronomy and its merits on a nationwide scale. Examples of activities you could volunteer for include:

  • Liaising with and bringing together all other Astronomy groups in Singapore
  • Organizing events which promote awareness in all aspects of Astronomy
  • Developing and compiling resources for people new to Astronomy
  • Giving introductory talks to schools
  • Helping out with observation sessions at schools, teaching students and the public about the skies
  • Designing material to improve science literacy through Astronomy

Time commitment: There will be periods of higher and lower activity, and the decision to help with any particular activity is up to you. You could help out from as little as 2 hours a month on a school outreach observation session, to as much as 3-5 hours per week planning for and organizing new events.

Requirements: There are no age / qualification / knowledge requirements. All we ask for is your enthusiasm! However, if you are under 18 years old, should seek parental consent.

To become a volunteer, contact Wei Lin at weilin@astronomy.sg.

Be an Associate Member

We are currently working on a paid membership scheme for those too busy to volunteer often, but who still wish to contribute to the Astronomy community in a meaningful way.

If you are interested in being notified when the Associate Membership scheme is up and running, drop us an email at contact@astronomy.sg.

In the mean time, we always welcome donations to aid the running of events and to help compensate volunteers for food and transport!
