I was approached a couple on months ago by the headmaster Stuart Clubb to see if I could assist with this project as I have helped in the past with similar project's. The aim is to build a one off observatory approximately 12m2 to house a restored unique telescope which was designed and built by a local inventor about 80 years ago and was a first of its kind with some connection I understand to NASA. This observatory will not only be used by the school but also open to the local community and a club formed.We also plan to involve the kids and local volunteers to assist with the design and construction of the build so using the project as a education tool for its construction process and in its end use.I hope you find this project worthy of inclusion in your giveaway.
