Our project focuses on inspiring people into science and technology through astronomy. We take our 12 inch computerised telescope and 8meter portable planetarium to schools and public places in an effort to inspire, engage and empower the next generation of African scientists. We invite kids for a lesson under the stars with a chance to look through our telescope as we give them a guided tour of the night sky. In addition we also give them an immersive experience in our digital planetarium.
