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.
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.
interest 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.
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
set up an Astronomy Club and equip the school with a observatory
and telescope which will provide regular opportunities to study
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.
