Observatory In Your Classroom

Date:Sunday October 4 2020 - Saturday October 10 2020

Time:Times subject to update


In association with ESERO Ireland, the resident astronomers and science facilitators at CIT Blackrock Castle Observatory are ready to deliver the night sky directly to your classroom. Using videoconferencing, they can deliver a 30 minute planetarium-style show for your students. Students can also put their questions to the team of experts, who will be more than happy to answer.

Registration is FREE, but more than this, all participating schools will be entered into a draw to win one of three telescopes up for grabs as part of our Space Week Telescope Competition!

The programme of available times/dates will be available shortly*. Spaces are subject to availability.

Schools will need a strong WiFi connection, a suitable videoconferencing account, and a screen large enough for students to be able to see the show.

*Please ensure that your connection has been tested, as we cannot reschedule slots lost due to technical errors.

Observatory in Your Classroom is consistently one of our most popular programmes. To be in with the best chance of securing a booking for your class we strongly recommend that you join the waiting list to receive a notification as soon as bookings open.
