How We Contribute to New TSN

Astronomy is an involving, inspirational activity with the capacity to attract people, especially the young, towards science, engineering and information technology. The Armagh Observatory seeks to strengthen this interest by promoting wider access to scientific knowledge amongst all sections of the community, and disseminating the results of its scientific research through a high-profile programme of education and public outreach. The principal elements of this policy include:

The Armagh Observatory is fully committed to implement the New TSN Policy. The Observatory encourages a culture in which resources in appropriate areas of its activities and interactions with the public are targeted so far as possible on individuals, groups, agencies, and geographical areas that have greatest social need. In this way, the Observatory contributes directly to Northern Ireland's New TSN Policy and Programme for Government, especially in enhancing access to science, and providing wider choice in education and lifelong learning opportunities for all.
