Outreach Programme

Until this year we have only been able to offer outreach visits for secondary schools.  However, in the 2017/18 academic year we can offer primary and secondary visits.  We are releasing a small number of bookable outreach slots so if you are interested please take a look at what we have on offer.

Royal Observatory Greenwich Outreach

Would you like a video chat with an astronomer?

Would you like to chat to one of our astronomers in your classroom? You can now chat to one of our astronomers from the comfort of your classroom. These sessions are facilitated via Skype and very flexible so they can often fit around your school day. Whether you are looking for someone to chat about cutting edge science, answer your questions about space or talk about their career path this is a great addition to school lessons. 

All you need to do is send us a request and let us know if there is a particular topic you would like to chat about. One of our astronomers will then get in touch to arrange a time. They will also send you their profile so that you can see what their particular field of expertise is and get thinking of some good questions.
