Our specialist astronomy masterclasses can be tailored to GCSE Astronomy and the Astrophysics A levels options. An astronomy masterclass at the National Space Centre can make use of the planetarium to discuss constellations and coordinate systems in detail.

As with all our masterclasses, we can also come to your school. We can deliver sessions for teachers if you’re looking for new ways to get the most out of your on-site observatory or planetarium.

Below are some examples of content that could be included in your masterclass. However, we can build a bespoke day depending on your requirements. Talk to us today and let’s make a plan!

Topics could include:

  • Coordinate systems
  • Multi-spectral astronomy
  • The scale of the universe
  • Parallax
  • Stellar evolution
  • Comets and meteors
  • Magnitudes, Cepheid variables and other light curves
  • Big Bang Theory
  • Kepler’s laws
  • Exoplanets
  • The Drake equation and life in the universe
