Outreach Talks / Guidance to the wider Public

One of our aims at Galway Astronomy Club is to help people understand astronomy. This might be through talks to local clubs and societies, talks to schools, or help with astronomy badges to scout and guide groups. Talks can be at any level; routinely we help local groups understand the night sky and what they can see, as well as helping individuals or groups to set up and get the best use out of astronomy equipment.

We can tailor talks to your needs, and can cover most astronomy topics, at both an introductory and slightly more advanced level.We have a certain amount of equipment we can use to help our talks come to life, such as meteorite samples, leaflets on astronomy and astronomy equipment, If you would like us to give a talk or help with any aspect of understanding astronomy, please contact us through our email address at galwayastronomyclub@gmail.com  or by organising it directly with our Education Officer; Brian MacGabhann on 0857298831.

As many of our talks involve young children we are bound by our Child Protection Policy and this is available to view HERE

There is no charge on talks within County Galway, but a small travel fee will apply for an talks outside the County. We look forward to hearing from you
