‘A’ Level Astrophysics Module

Presented as either an introduction, or as a revision/recap/reinforcement to the AQA Astrophysics module, with a relevant level topic content as above

The centre’s prime goal is always to enthuse / further enthuse students of all ages and levels regarding astronomy and related disciplines. As such, obligatory inclusions for any day will be a Planetarium show – (time to ‘relax’ under the stars…), and also very importantly, plenty of opportunity throughout the day to ASK questions...!
