As part of its science
promotional activities, Astrovision ľNavnirmiti was formed with the
objective of popularising Astronomy among people. Astrovision's team
of trained resource persons works towards creating awareness and interest
in astronomy especially among children through disseminating information,
organizing skyshows, training in use of telescope etc.
Astrovision is dedicated
to reach popular astronomy to schools and thus provide valuable experience
to as many students as possible. It also aims at setting up a school's
observatory by equipping the school with a telescope which the school
can use for future programmes.
and quest to know more about the celestial objects is a very natural
urge in both children and adults. Sky observation / Astronomy has always
been a fascinating subject for all. Observing the planets, stars and
celestial events and studying them can be a joyful learning activity.
But very little is done to develop this interest systematically and
give further opportunities to young minds. As a result we utilize a
wonderful part of our natural environment in developing scientific thinking
and temperament in children. We fail to enthuse them to learn by observing,
doing and discovering for themselves.
Astrovision has designed
a comprehensive programme, reaching many schools to provide necessary
inputs to carry on this science learning activity in a fun filled way
for all students.
OF THE 'SCHOOL ASTRONOMY PROGRAMME.'
- To promote scientific
temperament in children.
- To develop and
sustain interest of children in astronomy.
- To provide the
rare experience of observing the Sun, stars and planets through high
power telescope and also with simple, self-made instruments.
- To propagate
the fun and importance of the study of universe among youngsters.
- To bridge the
gap between the available knowledge resources and curious young minds.
To set up an
Astronomy Club and equip the school with a observatory and telescope
which will provide regular opportunities to study astronomy.
To achieve these above objectives we have designed a unique Astronomy
Programme for Schools. The programme includes lectures/ talks on
Astronomy, slide shows, films shows, star gazing,naked eye astronomy,
binocular astronomy, telescopic observations, Astronomy trips workshops
on how to make simple telescopes etc. Under this programme we invite
the schools to encourage all their students to take part in the
Astronomy programme & sky shows organised by Astrovision. Students
from class V to X can be involved in this programme.
