SOTON ASTRODOME: explore the astrophysics of the universe

NEWS:

For the 2018/2019 academic year we are working more strategically, so only doing 10 astrodome visits with a follow up astronomy workshop a few weeks later.

Our focus is now year 8/9 students in local 'widening participation' schools. And we are also planning on doing Astrodome events/workshops on a more long term basis with community groups such as local Youth Clubs for 8-19 year olds.

AIM:

Our aim is to provide local scientist role models for young people in the community and to promote the Astrophysics research of the University of Southampton.

EST JUNE 2011:

Since the birth of Soton Astrodome, the team of PhDs and Undergrad astronomers AKA #OurGreatestTeam have done astrodome shows at over 500 schools free of charge. Our astronomy outreach and public engagement program has engaged with over 90,000 people.
