On 20th May 2010 UNAWE-Tanzania successful received books, CD’s, posters and other teaching materials for outreach activities of Astronomy in Schools, Science Centres and the whole public with interest to Astronomy. These materials were received from the Great Portland Astronomical Society of Maine, USA and they are suitable for Children from 3 years of age as well as for anyone interested in astronomy including armatures and professionals.
UNAWE-Tanzania is going to make these materials available to the whole society through science centers, school clubs and the whole public by borrowing them whether online or physical from our office located at Mbezi Juu.
In school clubs and science centers members will have access to these books from UNAWE-Tanzania volunteers and they will be given books to study for a given time and then they will all together sit down to discuss and share ideas about the book and it’s relevance.
Individuals shall have an opportunity to read these books or other materials and finally be able to meet with UNAWE-Tanzania representatives to answer question or get clarification about confusing concepts.
Currently UNAWE-Tanzania will operate in Dar Es Salaam city, but mailing serving of books can be done to those schools which have already been visited by us from other regions within the country.
UNAWE-Tanzania is so thankful to Great Portland Astronomical Society of Maine, USA for time support on material donation and shipping to Tanzania. We promise to make good use of these resources for the benefit of the whole society and spear head the spirit of science to kids.
