Education & Outreach
We have developed an Educational Guide to Space and have run several active programmes producing material which is specifically aimed at the National Curriculum - Classroom Space . This package is indexed by Key Stage and contains lesson material based on real space data, addressing the specific curriculum requirements.
I gave the March 21st 2005 lecture to the Leicester Literary and Philosophical Society, sponsored by the British Association. This was published in the Transactions of the society. A colour version of the article and the slides from the talk can be downloaded from here .
On April 6th 2009 I gave a workshop at the Space Academy teachers' conference. The slides from the talk can be downloaded from here .
We have collaborated with local artist Joyce Markie who has a strong interest in creating images of Space and Astronomy. Her abstract impression of the DA + K star binary system V471 Tauri is now online (click the image below for a larger version).
