Development of online astronomy lessons for students in Ghana

Target location: Ghana

Target audience: An estimated 30000 students including basic school, high school and university students.

The materials available can be accessed by all people who are interested in astronomy and are not within our group of students and pupils, hence providing a wider outreach

The project will develop online lessons in astronomy and share with students through social media. The lessons would be deployed weekly and questions and feedbacks from users addressed. Lessons will include, a virtual tour of the 32-metre radio telescope at Kutunse, in Accra, hands- on- activities, introductory and intermediate topics in astronomy and techniques like teaching students python programming and applicable software.
