About

In addition to events and workshops, on-site presentations are also offered. Presentations can be tailored for the age and interest-level of your group.

Currently, there are two presentations available, which are based from the workshops that are offered: The Moon and The Planets.

These talks are easy-to-understand and use animated visuals to explain concepts. These aren't your boss's boring PowerPoint presentations.

Each talk lasts roughly 30 minutes. Depending on your group, we can then do a customized activity, such as arts & crafts for kids or a Q&A session for adults.

Weather and celestial objects permitting, we can also do a brief telescope training and look at the sky!

Have a group that would find this interesting?

Manager of Community and Family Services

"Trevor did a two-week series at our library called Discover Astronomy for kids ages 7 to 12. The kids learnt about the phases of the Moon, chracteristics of each planet, and about the solar system in general. There was a great balance of learning from a presentation (with awesome animations) and hands-on trying stuff out yourself.

"After the lesson portion, the kids made papier mâché helmets during the first session and painted them to look like astronaut helmets during the second session. The program fit in with our desire to increase STEAM programming and offer something a little different. We had an amazing experience and would love to offer this program again!"

Annie Preston

Transition Program Coordinator

"Trevor came to animate a parent-child activity with us and was totally amazing! We learned about the Moon and were able to look through his telescope at the Moon. Trevor was flexible and adaptable throughout all the planning. The activity was accessible and fun!

"It was the first time using a telescope for the majority of the kids and they were intrigued and excited to gain information about the world around. We would 100% recommend working with Trevor for any group."
