Come and experience Astronomy with us!
The STAR Group caters to the needs of students, visitors, the public, science excursions (Double Helix, etc) around the Adelaide area.
The Observatory staff, teachers and students work closely with the educational and general community which directly assists educational outcomes for students in particular (some of whom have gone on to University studies in Astrophysics).
Through regular management meetings that involve representatives of all the stakeholders, decisions are agreed to that guide the direction of the programs.
There are programs to encourage and foster:
- female participation
- cultural inclusions of Aboriginal astronomy
- variable star studies
- students presenting scientific facts to the general public
