The Sidewalk Astronomers' Reach Out Astronomy project encourages us to do things a little differently.
Try reaching out to shut-ins, senior centers, veteran centers, or facilities for special needs persons. With our resources
for sight impaired individuals there is a lot of opportunity. This might be the one program that you won't need a scope
for. Be creative and try to reach a different audience then we usually get on the sidewalk. Reach Out Astronomy will
be held the week of July 11-16th.
Write up your activities and share ideas
for sight impaired, special needs, wheelchair bound individuals and those with austism.
