We are always looking for new volunteers, so please visit our website for more information!

Exploring the Stars

Exploring the Stars is an Astronomy outreach program at Western, and has been running since 2006. Although this program is run by a few graduate student TAs, we can always use more help, especially during open houses and large scale events! So, if you're interested in helping with Astronomy related hands-on activities, or teaching groups about telescopes (specifically the Hume Cronyn refractor), please send us an email - "explorethestars [at] gmail [dot] com" - Please visit our website for a schedule of events.
