We’re raising money to build a Science Discovery Centre and Planetarium on the land next to our observatory so that we can expand and enhance our astronomy education outreach activities.
We are talking with some major funders who are interested in our project and its potential to improve STEM learning in the area and become a unique attraction that supports the visitor economy. To take the next step, we need to raise £22,500 in matched funding by December 2020. As you can see from our ‘funding rocket’ we have raised £12,200 so far and our thanks go to Ashfield Council, Lindhurst Engineering, Qinesis and Pete W for their generous support.
