Astronomy Workshops

by on , under Astronomy Blog, Information, Resources

My hands-on astronomy workshops have been extremely popular, as well as very rewarding to do.

With a lot of theory packed in all the workshops have a lot of hands-on content which aids the learning process and makes for an enjoyable day.
Places limited to 15 delegates so that I have as much time as needed to help everyone who attends.
