Hi All,

 

We are looking for astronomy groups for discussions for a 6-year old astronomer interested in stars, galaxies, blackholes, exoplanets, multiverse, etc.

 

We are in Sunnyvale, CA and members of Chabot and SJAA but looking for peer discussion groups (especially online) for younger kids. Looking for something similar to math circles but for astronomy and again online based on current scenario.

 

Thanks,

Gaurang

You might check with the local Cub Scout Pack to see if they offer astronomy pin and have an adult leader who teaches the material for that pin. We used to host an annual Astronomy Night back when I was a Cub Scout Leader.

That is a great option. But with the current scenario of lockdown, we are looking for online options.
