Outreach

ORBIT stands for OutReach Builders Team. We are the outreach arm of the Seattle Astronomical Society.

The official mission of the SAS includes outreach as one of the main efforts of the organization. However, we recognize that not all astronomers are equally interested in outreach, and the ORBIT group was created so that we will communicate outreach-related matters only to those who are interested.

There are no notes for this activity.

    SAS outreach volunteers are needed for a south King county elementary school STEM fair.  STEM is science, technology, engineering and math.  Participation is limited to the school students and select STEM volunteers.  Whether you are an enthusiastic newby to the science of astronomy or a seasoned observer, your ability to communicate with young minds is valuable.  Please contact education@seattleastro.org for more information.

    Galileo's Galaxy

    Fri at 01:00 PM SAS Members Only

    Hi there,

    In the month of March, we are creating an activity calendar that explores everything Italian. Galileo was Italian and a pioneer in how we view the universe. With this, I'm hoping to provide an educational opportunity for residents at our one, two, or all three of our communities! I'm also hopeful that the Seattle Astronomical Society will be able to help us in hosting such an event in which we illuminate the night sky. Might one of your members be open to leading such an event for us in the form of a presentation of some sort?

    I know our residents would certainly enjoy listening to a local expert on the subject matter and so I hope you can help us.

    Thank you so much,

    Dustin Darnold
