FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

I hope to fill this section with helpful resources for high school students with an interest in astronomy!

For now, it contains links to summer schools that either have an astronomy theme or are based around setting you up for university life.

If there is something you would like to see on here, let me know!

 

ASTRONOMY SUMMER SCHOOLS

SENIOR SPACE SCHOOL

SUTTON TRUST SUMMER SCHOOLS (SOCIAL MOBILITY)

Do you still have one more year left at school and live in the UK? Do you feel like the University of St Andrews (or other top universities) may not be for you because they're too "elite"? This summer school could be the one for you! It's free and can help you understand the process of applying to top universities.

AWARD YOUR SCIENCE TEACHER!

If you have an incredible science teacher, consider nominating them for an award! Perhaps this one from the RAS:

"The Patrick Moore Medal is awarded for a particularly noteworthy contribution to astronomy or geophysics by school teachers e.g. by significantly improving examination results, running an active outreach programme or engaging students in extra-curricular projects. The Medal is normally presented at the next National Astronomy Meeting, or if this is not possible, at one of the Society’s A&G meetings.

Suggestions are invited from anyone, including teachers who wish to propose themselves. There is no need to be a member of the Royal Astronomical Society. Nominees should be qualified teachers who normally teach at primary or secondary level. Shortlisted candidates may be asked to provide additional information."
