Cosmology Workshops at Kielder Observatory

Cosmology Workshops at Kielder Observatory

In recent years scientists have gained great insights into our Universe and now is a fantastic time to bring your own knowledge and understanding up to date through our Cosmology Workshops hosted at Kielder Observatory.

Communicating science at all levels is our passion and we'll be presenting the latest scientific theories in ways that are both accessible and readily understood, no matter your background or experience in Astronomy.

From the big bang to star formation and black holes to supernovas these courses will broaden your knowledge and open your mind to a whole Universe you may never know existed!  Delivered using a concept-based approach avoiding jargon and complex mathematics we'll bring you closer to Cosmology through the use of animations and amazing imagery – then when darkness falls you'll be able to see it in action for yourselves through our large aperture telescopes!

Expert tuition will be given by experienced lecturers including observatory Director Gary Fildes and Dr Fred Stevenson (formerly of Durham University), also on hand will be experienced Astronomers to answer all of your questions and guide you around the night sky.

Come and join us for an evening that will leave you inspired.

The Cosmology Workshops run on the following dates:

08/06/14 from 18:00 to 23:00
15/06/14 from 18:00 to 23:00
22/06/14 from 18:00 to 23:00
