The first Day of Astronomy Club

Today Mr Tan talked about the plans for the future of the club, such as trips and games.
I felt a sense of nostalgia coming back to the Club after a holiday of 2 months. I felt I needed to brush up on my Astronomy knowledge to be better able to lead the new batch of Sec 1s through their academic journey. This made me more enthusiastic about the lessons moving forward.

NYP Poster Competition

For the NYP Poster Competition, Me, Jayden, Clyde, Ernest and Javier formed a team together.

The theme we chose for the competition was "Mars, the red planet".

This is a picture of the poster.
We had to present the poster to a panel of judges for approval. 
This was my first competition i Astronomy where I had to present to a specialist. It was a really nerve wracking experience. From the time it took to prepare the presentation to the presentation itself, I would never forget the excited feeling I had at the time. 

Through this competition, I had learnt presentation skills and how to work well under pressure. 

Last Day of Astro 2017

On our last day of Astronomy on Friday, we had lessons as usual from 2.30pm to 4.30pm and we had a Stargazing session that lasted from 6.30pm to 9.00pm.
During the session, we were able to use 3 different kinds of telescopes to look at the sky.
The activity reminded me of the reason why I first chose Astronomy Club as my CCA, it was a wonderful way to commemorate the end of the year 2017.

Journey to the Science Centre

On November 3rd, our Club went on a trip to the Science Centre not too far from SST. There we were able to use the Centre's facilities such as the large telescope on the rooftop to admire the moon.

I felt that the trip taught me many things such as how large telescopes work and the view through one of said telescopes. I look forward to such an event in the year 2018.

T Shirt design

This is the design for our Astronomy Club T-Shirts. I think this is an appropriate design for the club, weaving in the colour of Outer Space and the will to learn, not to mention the club motto.
It made me feel pride in wearing the club uniform.
