CIRA Outreach

If you organise or take part in any astronomy outreach activities, please add a brief description to this page so we can keep a record of what's going on. This makes writing reports for CIRA/ICRAR/Faculty/whoever, much easier. For record-keeping purposes, please also include an estimate of the size of the audience where known. Please also add any interviews, press releases or other contact with the media to this table.

If you don't have a wiki login, either email the maintainers of this wiki, or email the details of your event to sarah [dot] white1 [at] curtin [dot] edu [dot] au.
