Education / Outreach / Pricing
Members of WYAS involved in Educational / Outreach activities have current DBS checks in place.

The West Yorkshire Astronomical Society (WYAS) is aware that young people and groups are inspired to learn about astronomy and space science. We can deliver the wonders of the universe to you with tailored lectures and a variety of workshops that can satisfy these learning needs at Youth & Community groups, schools and other organisations, bringing astronomy and space science to you at a level which is understandable and enjoyable to learn about, and where applicable, supports the National Curriculum.


WYAS is a registered charity, to assist with its running costs the following charges will apply:
