What is a Cosmic Star Safari?

Cosmic Star Safari is a one year space and astronomy programme for a lucky school.

Here are the space and astronomy-related projects and milestones that are part of it:

Milestone 1. Our portable planetarium visits the school.

Milestone 2. The school visits Stonehenge Aotearoa.

Throughout the year, 30 students get to access robotic telescopes in Chile and the Canary Islands. 

Milestone 3. After one year, the school creates a temporary exhibition from what they learned during the online astronomy programme. 

Cosmic Star Safari is provided by NZAN with support from Milky-Way.Kiwi and Stonehenge Aotearoa 

Hari Mogosanu doing the pitch for Kapai Soup. KA PAI SOUP is a social event that aims to make community initiatives and cool wee projects happen quickly in Carterton, promoting community-based development through crowdfunding, creativity, collaboration, democracy and fun.
