Here at Dark Sky Wales we:
- Inspire science education and lifelong learning
- Encourage careers in science and technology
- Promote awareness of dark skies in Wales
- Demonstrate the mythology and legends of the constellations from diverse cultures
All of our workshops are linked by one common theme – Astronomy! The beauty of our night sky has enthralled people throughout the ages and has made a lasting impression in both the sciences and humanities. This wonder of the universe has inspired generations of scientists and engineers to discover more about the cosmos from the ancient Greeks to Einstein. We have taken their lead and developed a series of activities that take participants that little further and introduce them to subjects they generally would not have engaged with.
Furthermore, our heritage in the night sky is in danger of being lost to the encroachment of light pollution. Dark Sky Wales hopes to raise public awareness of this issue by engaging learners in astronomy, science and technology and inspire future generations to wonder once again.
