Over the years I have developed a set of public talks and lectures for audiences at all levels. I also have a series of smaller demos and activities, suitable for classroom and/or public events, including: planet viewing, safe solar viewing, the scale of the solar system, earth/moon phases demo, constellations, planisphere-making, and the activities created for We Share the Same Moon. To book any of these, please contact me.
