Zoom Online Lessons!

In order to allow those who choose to home school, need help with homework or Booster sessions, and schools who are struggling with current restrictions, Auriga Astronomy want to allow any person young or OLD to learn from our 18 years of experience in Astronomy education.

We cannot use our mobile planetarium (nor can any safely operate while ANY form of Social Distancing is in place due to air exchange) we do operate a SAFE stage show for schools events and fundraising, but that does little to help the student isolated at home or individual home learners (or those who wish a bit of booster tuition)

We are offering 40 minutes to 1 hour ZOOM online lessons on most astronomy (and certain Medieval History) topics covered by the national curriculum. We can also tailor make a session to suit your needs, just ask.

We would rather YOU contact us, tell us YOUR requirements, then we can set a time for the delivery of the zoom online lessons YOU want!

ZOOM online Lessons; Testimonial:-

Dave gave two talks to our school on space exploration, on Zoom. As is typical for Dave’s presentations, he was abundantly thorough and his tone highly engaging. It’s truly impressive that he succeeded in keeping everyone so engaged while speaking from a computer screen! Any teacher who’s spent all term teaching on Zoom knows that’s quite the feat. His rich knowledge is hugely evident, particularly when answering the range of questions that the students throw at him, but his talks also had a crucial human touch – the occasional joke or personal experience.  I didn’t think it could be done but the talks really were accessible to all ages in the school – the year 7s could comfortably follow, while the year 12 A level students were enthralled too. Dave has a great way of hinting at further areas that the students could research throughout the talks. These talks were exactly what the students needed, to fascinate and inspire them after months of learning in lockdown! One teacher said his class spent the entire next lesson asking more questions about the topic. Another staff member said it was the best Zoom session she’d seen all year. Thank you, Dave – we can’t wait to have you back!

This Yrs 6-9  lesson looks at each planet in turn giving detailed scientific information on them, what they are made of, why they are the colour they are and is there anywhere other than Earth that can sustain life?

The life cycle of a Star

This KS4 lesson details how and where stars form, what they actually are and the precise conditions required for star formation. It further shows how stars live their lives and finally how they die. What is left behind, and its role in a stars 'circle of life' as well as the truly bizarre object left behind by some stars when they die.

A visually stunning presentation! with plenty of time for in depth questions.

Here we can deliver two different shows;

Greek mythology, how the ancient Greeks pantheon of gods ruled their daily lives and why they saw the world this way.
