Wednesday afternoon school:
The school for teachers and learners will be conducted in a way suggested by Dr Mary Kay Hemenway, President of the IAU ‘Education’ Division (who will also attend the meeting) in which our research students and postdocs will be encouraged to present their talks also to senior high-school learners in a special session, in such a way that will make the science or the aims of their work comprehensible. A test of the success of these learner presentations will be conducted by a small team led by Jocelyn Bell, who will discuss the papers with the high-school students and assess their degree of comprehension. Both our outreach group and that of SAAO are very keen to help with the high-school exercise, as are the members of the IAU ‘Astronomy for Development’ group.
