Chris Wareing's Outreach Activities
I have given talks at amateur astronomy societies, SciBars, secondary schools and colleges with titles such as
- "Lost into Space: the fate of our Sun"
- "Revealing the mass-loss history of a star"
- "HOW TO GO FROM SAVING THE WORLD FROM GLOBAL WARMING TO PREDICTING THE FUTURE OF OUR SUN IN 5 BILLION YEARS!"
In the past I have been the North-West Regional Coordinator for the Science for Schools programme organised by the Royal Institution of Great Britain and funded by the Royal Society. In that role, I ran science-based events at schools and other venues around the North-West region of the UK for school children aged 9 to 18 and a few events for the general public. In the scope of the programme, we reached over 30,000 children between September 2005 and July 2007.
I have also been the coordinator of the Mobile Planetarium into Primary Schools project at Jodrell Bank under Dr Tim O'Brien. In the course of doing this, I have personally enthused and excited several thousand children about astronomy and been able to show them the stars inside a portable inflatable stardome.
I have given astronomy-based talks for the National Association of Gifted Children in Cheshire and been part of various of their events at Jodrell Bank.
If you have a planetarium and require a speaker or require a demonstration-based interactive talk on mathematics or astronomy in general, please get in touch.
