Date: 19th July 2013 (Friday) Time: 6.30pm – 9.00pm Venue: Science Centre Singapore, Observatory Classroom (near the Omni-theatre) Cost: $9/pax (to cover food)
We will begin with brief 5 to 10-minute talks by Galaxy Astronomy Club, National Junior College and Science Centre Singapore about their observatories, their clubs, and other resources which they can share.
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 also wish to do a 5-minute talk about your own Astronomy club or activity experience, please do indicate so on the registration form!
