Astronomy Club

Our Astronomy Club was our flagship program which started us on the journey to the creation of the Science Academy. Through this program we have developed links to Melbourne University via the Telescopes in Schools program. We have also developed a relationship with Swinburne’s Department of Physics which has led to us hosting guests from NASA and various other astronomical programs around the world. Above all, our program is supported by Mt Burnett Observatory who have provided support beyond our wildest dreams. They have allowed us to host the Victorian Amateur Astronomy Conference (VASTROC) and have previously sent one of our students to NASA for space camp in 2018.

The Astronomy Club runs every second Tuesday and is open to all students with an interest in science. We have recently broadened our sights to biology and chemistry projects.
