I thought an explanation might be in order for why I’ve been a little absent on the website.
Two reasons really.
The first seems to be that I have hit my maximum Social Media brain quota. It appears maintaining a blog, Twitter account (@scopesinSchools) and the NEW Facebook page is all a bit too much. 🙂 But do come over and like our Facebook page for brief accounts of our Astronomy adventures and I will work on the blog and fill you in on the last six months (where did the year go?!).
The second thing that is taking up a fair swag of my time is the organisation of the Astronomy and Light Festival also with a blog, Facebook page and Twitter handle @AstroFestVic and you can follow #ALiV2015 for all of the latest news.
The Festival is part of National Science Week and the International Year of Light and the Mount Burnett Observatory and Telescopes in Schools have teamed up to put a great night on for anyone in Melbourne on August 22nd at Scienceworks. With heaps of activities for everyone, lots of science and heaps of entertainment, make sure you put that date in your diary!
Tickets go on sale very soon!
