How would you like to get involved?
We are planning a variety of events: Teacher training workshops will be held, either virtually or in-person. There will be school visits throughout the GA and activities for school groups at the Cape Town Science Centre (CTSC) and Iziko Planetarium and Digital Dome. On 10 August, there will be a public event at the V&A Waterfront, which will include a public talk and star-gazing. On 11 August, we plan to engage with the public on Signal Hill and at the Promenade. The South African Astronomical Observatory (SAAO) will host several Open Nights and public talks will be held at various Cape Town venues, for which speakers are needed. We are also considering events for diners in some of Cape Town's restaurants. You may also offer activities not listed here by selecting the Other option.
When would you be available?
Please choose all the time slots when you would be available for taking part in outreach activities. All times listed are in SAST (UT + 02:00).
What kind of activities would you like to offer?
Please choose the kind of activities you would be happy to offer. Mention any other activities you could offer in the next question.
If you are travelling in Africa before or after the GA2024 and would be happy to conduct public outreach, there might be some opportunities. We will get back to you with more details if there is an option for your travel destination.
Please let us know about your experience with public outreach.
Would you wear a "Ask me! I'm an Astronomer!" badge?
If there is sufficient interest, we are considering to offer "Ask me! I'm an Astronomer!" badges for the GA participants to wear and to publicise the badge on the media, so that Cape Town residents can get into conversation with you.
If you have any cool ideas for outreach activities that could be offered during the GA, please let us know.
