Faulkes Telescope Project to participate in Banbury event

On the 23rd January 2015, the Faulkes Telescope (FT) team will participate in a workshop at The School Observatory which is located at the Space Studio in Banbury, Oxfordshire.

The workshop is aimed primarily at teachers or technicians who are considering having an astronomical observatory at their schools. however it should prove to be a useful networking event for those that already have an observatory, or a keen interest in astronomy. It will also feature sessions on data collection and analysis as well as image processing.

The event will run from 2 PM until 10 PM, which we hope will allow us the opportunity to observe the night sky. The afternoon/evening workshop is FREE for teachers and technicians - a light buffet and refreshments will be provided.

Alongside the FT team, this event will also have contributions from Dr. Chris North (Cardiff University) and Dr. Chris Leigh (National Schools' Observatory Strategic Projects' Coordinator).
