Astronomy Beyond Visual Observations

This morning, we went to 118 San Miguel, (Brgy. Plainview) Mandaluyong City, to have our extension program. Part of our requirements as graduate students in Astronomy of RTU is the conducting of an extension project. within Pasig/Mandaluyong. The goal of our extension program was to promote astronomy education by providing scientific awareness as well as foster an interest into the hobby/science of astronomy. We also sought to inspire the young minds of students as well as give them a first hand opportunity in being involved in astronomical activities.

We introduced the kids to the basic facts about astronomy, various naked eye objects, the celestial sphere and the use and assembly of telescopes, as well as introduce them to amateur astronomy.
