* * * * *
Date: 24th July 2015 (Friday)
Time: 6.30pm - 9pm (followed by a free Digital Planetarium preview at the Omni Theatre)
Venue: Science Centre Singapore, Herschel Room
The first 45min will be open to Community and School Astronomy groups to do 5-10 min sharing sessions on their clubs, or resources which they are willing to share with others.
We will then split participants up into tables of 6-8 for dinner and a chance to interact with a small group of peers to exchange thoughts, ideas and experiences. Prompter sheets will be provided for each table to assist in discussions and to ensure the greatest takeaway from the experience.
If you and your school wish to do a 5-minute talk about your own Astronomy club or activity experience, please do indicate so when you register!
