Star Parties

HAC provides the public with a large range of Star Parties and Events to the public designed to interest those who are new to astronomy to the sky beyond our normal experiences.  These night-time and daytime events introduce the public to the use of optical aids such as binoculars and telescopes and let the public view close up the planets, stars, galaxies and other heavenly bodies.  The public has a chance to ask experienced members questions about astronomy and show them how to use a telescope.  In most cases the public is encouraged to bring their own telescope to learn how to use and maintain them.  Experienced astronomy hobbyists get to share their knowledge, experiences, and passions with other amateur astronomers.

Bridge Competition

The construction and testing of model bridges promotes the study and application of principles of physics and engineering and it also helps students develop "hands on" skills. Through participating, students get a flavour of what it is to be an engineer, designing structures to a set of specs and then seeing them perform their function.
