Workshops

I like to combine science with imagination to investigate the wonders and mysteries of life.

Astronomy and the Human Being

Starwatch with Greek and Aboriginal myths and legends of the night sky

Cosmogony and Cosmology

No prior knowledge or skills in Astronomy needed. Teaching is done imaginatively with participants doing a lot of movement, dressed in specifically coloured costumes (if they are comfortable doing so) and emulating the planetary and star movements.
