We have covered a wide range of topics under the science umbrella, including Astronomy, Chemistry, Geology and Maths. Social sciences have included a look at a number of environmental issues and our sessions on the Circular Economy with Catherine Weetman of Rethinkglobal are available for free here.

Our Astronomy Tutor, Dr Adrian Jannetta, returns in June with Summer Astronomy, a five session beginner’s course exploring celestial wonders, our solar system, stellar life cycles, enigmatic galaxies, and the universe’s secrets! Saturdays 3, 10, 17, 24 June & 1 July, 11.00-12 noon on zoom. Full details here. 

In the meantime you can follow Adrian on Twitter and Instagram. In addition, lots of useful local astronomical news, photos and commentaries can be found on the website of the Northumberland Astronomical Society here.


No previous knowledge is assumed for any of our courses and all are welcome
