David Letcher, Outreach Chair
Community outreach opportunity: On Thursday, February 21, 2013 from 6:30 – 8:30 PM AAAP Members are invited to set up their telescopes on the playground and share their expertise at Mill Lake School’s annual Astronomy Night. This event is for the benefit of second grade students and their families, with middle school students presenting a variety of space centers and activities along with more than eight teachers. Pizza and sandwiches with hot and cold beverages will be served. The event is held regardless of the weather. Mill Lake School is located at 115 Monmouth Road, Monroe Township, NJ 08831. While optimum night sky viewing conditions rarely present themselves at this event, the children always learn in a fun way and gain an appreciation of space study. Interested persons may call Member and Principal Dr. Lynn Barberi.
