"We Educate and Inspire"
Offering astronomy-related workshops to our members and the general public is one way that we at ORAS support our mission. Workshops introduce new ideas, inspiring participants to further explore them on their own. Workshops are a great way to teach hands-on skills as they give learners an opportunity to try out new methods in a safe environment. Workshops also provide an opportunity to meet other people who share the same interests, and a chance to learn something new.
Specific workshop topics, goals, and agendas will appear on this page. You will be able to choose a workshop and register here. Workshops range from those attractive to beginner observers to those wanting to hone their skills in astrophotography. The ORAS Learning Center will be the training location, either in the Jones building classroom or the Observatory.
We are located at 4249 Camp Coffman Road, Cranberry, PA 16319. Your GPS will get you here.
Your registration fee includes training aids, handouts, lunch, and an opportunity to unlock something that might already be inside of you.
A scholarship for various sessions may be offered. Contact the workshop facilitator for availability.
