Outreach Team Finishes a Huge August Program

The Outreach team had a massive month of events in August 2019. Nearly half the month had something on! We did:

7 scout groups

2 interest groups (adults)

1 private booking

1 Public Viewing night

1 Fashion shoot

1 Film shoot for Prof. Alan Duffy

2 off-site events – one at McCleland Sculpture Park and one at Coolart Homestead as part of Science in the Park on August 11th.

Thank you all those Outreach members who turned up and made an effort. Some of us also had Young Observers, two committee meetings, Science Week, the Pro-Am workshop, the work bee and Friday night members nights! Whew! If some of us are looking a little tired at the moment, now you know why.
