International Year of Astronomy 2009

At our March meeting we discussed what activities we should undertake to support the International Year of Astronomy. Our plan is to carry out a series of events in local schools and venues to raise awareness of astronomy and space science. More details are in the presentation below.

Full details are in this IYA Briefing Document (pdf file).

The Committee are continuing to work up ideas for these events, but here are 10 ways you can help . .
  1. Have you got contacts with local schools?
  2. Would you be willing and available to help out with some events?
  3. What ideas have you got for "ten things" we could cover?
  4. Would you be willing to prepare and give a short talk at and event?
  5. Do you know any useful routes we could try to get sponsorship?
  6. Do you know of any locations we could use for public events (church halls etc)?
  7. Have you can any useful contacts to publicise events?
  8. Have you got access to equipment we may need (display boards for example)?
  9. Have you got any useful posters or pictures we could use?
  10. What other ideas have you got?
