School visits

Book a zoom or in-person visit

Looking to bring a real-life astronomer into your classroom? Dr. Laura Driessen offers free, half-hour Zoom sessions for primary and high school students. You can choose between a Q&A session or a talk session, and there is no charge for the session.

For schools in the Sydney, Australia area or anywhere in New South Wales, Laura is available for in-person visits as well. If you’re interested, please email her at to discuss options.

When booking online, each booking block is 90 minutes, so you have the flexibility to choose a start time for your half-hour session. This allows you to select a time that works for your classroom’s schedule.
