OTHER INFORMATION

The purpose of this organization shall be to provide an environment where students can learn about astronomy, space, and telescopes. We will focus on teaching students how to use telescopes, getting students out and actually using the telescopes, and repairing old telescopes. We also hold regular meetings where students learn about topics in astronomy and discuss recent events. Students are welcome to bring in anything they would like to show such as equiptment and astronomical pictures. The club also works in close conjunction with the Melbourne Astronomical Society and encourages its members to visit MAS meetings.
