Part 1: Stars & Planets online workshops - 24-26 August [BOOK ON THIS PAGE]

Virtual education specialists Fizzics Education will deliver an interactive Stars & Planets online workshop for Cubs, Scouts and Venturers. Online Zoom workshops offered on 3 nights during week 6 of Term 3. Choose one of 4 repeat workshops: Monday 24 (6.30pm), Tuesday 25 (6.30 and 7.45pm) OR Wednesday 26 August (6.30pm). Due to limited capacity, Scouts from the ACT and surrounding NSW South Coast & Tablelands Region have priority access to these workshops.

Investigate our Universe and space exploration techniques in this hands-on science workshop! How does the Earth, Moon and Sun work in the Solar System? How are the tides formed? What did the Big Bang really look like? How do we observe distant galaxies and what does that tell about our Universe? What technological developments were necessary to allow astronauts to work and survive outside of Earth’s atmosphere and much more!

Max 60/workshop. $5/participant (plus 50c booking fee), includes SciScouts: Space event badge. A Zoom link and password will be sent out to registered participants. NB: Individuals can register, however if Leaders decide to register as a Unit, please let parents know, so they don’t double book. Although siblings may choose to participate on the same device, please note that unless two tickets are purchased, only one badge will be sent.

Due to limited capacity, Scouts from the ACT and surrounding NSW South Coast & Tablelands Region have priority access to these workshops. [Interstaters are welcome to join us for the Mt Stromlo Night and for Destination Moon & Beyond.]
