club Curriculum Series

Astrophile “Science & Astronomy Curriculum Series” is a set of Science and astronomy concepts designed and developed for delivering in to the classroom environment like any other curriculum. The topics are not only interrelated but also the understanding of one concept helps in learning the other concepts easy. 

The program begins with basic learning of the objects and terms in astronomy followed by a set of classroom activities using hands on approach with team building and cooperation. The concepts throw challenges to student and make them think beyond what their friends and classmates not participating in the programs do.

The Annular curriculum comprises of 9 visits and 21 topics or concepts all interlinked and learning using different approach. Be it multimedia, or hands on or observation, the key to learning here is group discussion and Q&A not just during a session, but also what they read and learn at home. The student get all the material which will be used during the experiment conduction and they take it back home as a kit material. So every student gets a kit which also includes a small telescope capable of resolving the craters of Moon, phases of Venus, Jupiter and its moons and the rings of Saturn. 7 Visits are during the school hours, while 1 visit to the school is conducted in the evening. 1 of the days we go to a dark site and spend the whole night under the stars having an up close and personal views of the cosmos.

The workshops are organised and conducted in the safe and secure manner, mostly inside the school premises and during school hours making it easier for schools to conduct and for students to not have extra hours spent. The days are picked as per the school calendar where the school already has certain activities planned and none or very few classes are scheduled. This makes it easier for students to commute using school bus services. Parents who come and pick their wards find it easier and they do not have to make adjustment with their timings.
