About the Project
PRAGSAC seeks to work through school visits and school clubs to give students first-hand practical Astronomy information and an appreciation of the importance and benefits of the Ghana Radio Astronomy Observatory (GRAO) at Kuntunse.
The project set to commence in August 2018 in Schools near the GRAO will involve the design and development of learning materials; workshops, schools visits, formation of astronomy clubs, an interactive website to showcase activities in different schools and the maiden quiz on astronomy for Junior High School students. Students will have the opportunity to visit the observatory at Kuntunse and the planetarium in Accra.
The PRAGSAC website will report on activities of the clubs. However, formal monthly reports will also be drafted. The project aims that by December 2018, around 500 students will be have been introduced to astronomy and radio astronomy through initial school visits, and astronomy clubs will have been set up in 4 schools.
