Furness Astro Meeting

Friday 3rd February at 7:30pm in the Lower Meeting Room of Trinity Church Centre on Abbey Road in Barrow-in-Furness. The post code is LA14 5HT; Trinity Church Centre is opposite Kwik Fit and the entrance is at the back in Warwick Street.

We have a return visit this time from Stuart Atkinson from Eddington Astronomical Society at Kendal. His subject is ‘New Horizons and Pluto’.

The full list of speakers and meeting dates for this season is available on the web-site www.fslas.org – please have a look and print it so that you have a record. I think you will agree that there is something for everybody.

Don’t forget that you can now access and borrow books, videos and DVD’s from our library at the meeting.

Any prospective new members who want to join may also pay by cash/cheque at this meeting.

Work Experience at the Astrophysics Research Institute (ARI)

Any A level students interested in our annual work experience have until the 28th February to apply!
Each year we welcome 15 A-Level students for a week long work experience programme. This week consists of talks, workshops and an in-depth group research project supervised by professional astronomers here in the department. The week culminates in the students producing a report and presenting their findings to the rest of the group and invited staff from the ARI.
There is no charge for this work experience week; all we ask is that the students can easily commute to the ARI office in Liverpool City Centre (146 Brownlow Hill, Liverpool L3 5RF).
The next work experience week will take place between Monday 10th July and Friday 14th July 2017.
