Bringing Astronomy to the Public - Young Astronomers Program
This year NJAA is planning to offer a Young Astronomers program on the second or third Saturday of the month, from May through October. These events will kick off at 6:30pm and will run until approximately 8:00pm. These events may or may not include some kind of presentation, but the focus will always be 'hands on' learning. The events will be facilitated and staffed by Youth Committee members.
