Family Astronomy night and Telescope making workshop for kids
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. The observations will include the surface of the Moon, Venus and its phases, and some deep-sky objects including clusters of stars and galaxies.
Pakistan Science Club is organizing a worth learning astronomy night in collaboration with the Dreamworld 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 only its material fee. The workshop is for children from age 7 to 14 in which participants will learn to make their own telescope. Register Now
