Objective: Promote education about, and raise public awareness of, South Africa’s astronomical heritage.
At the Centre, we think of “outreach” as a broad term encompassing:
- in-person engagement with an audience (e.g. interviews; public speaking; sidewalk astronomy; site tours),
- the presentation of online media (e.g. conducting a social media campaign; serving content to Wikipedia & Google Earth Historical Imagery), and
- the promotion of the celebration of astronomical anniversaries (including informing local government organizations about their particular astronomical heritage resources).
