Astronomy for Kids?

Although the club is mainly for adults, we don’t want to exclude kids from what can be a rewarding hobby.
In the short term, at least, we aren’t likely to have any provisions for unaccompanied under-16s, but if parents wish to bring their children along they are most welcome to do so.

Update – 22/3/2012

There has been some interest recently in setting up a junior section of the club. If you are experienced at working with children, and you have a good understanding of the requirements of the PVG Act, both for individuals and for organisations, then you may be interested in becoming a founder or leader of a junior section.

We’ll be kicking off discussion at our March Meeting. There is also a forum thread.

Update – 1/10/2012

Alice has done some more research into what’s needed, and hopes to get started in earnest during autumn 2013. As you will see from her post, she has another important project to take care of first.
