Stargazing is a wonderful family activity and a rewarding experience with fun to introduce children to many wonders of the night sky. It’s easy to get started, as long as you have clear skies, a good observing site, and basic knowledge of the constellations.


Pakistan Science Club is organizing a learning astronomy night in collaboration with the Dreamworld Hotel & Resort for families. The stargazing activity, explanation, and observation are completely free of cost, and if you want to attend a telescope-making workshop then you can register for it by paying its fee which is Rs 4500 (20% discount available exclusively for Dreamworld and Pakistan Science Club members).
