The Molo Mhlaba Astro Club provides weekly after-school programmes for primary school girls, which engage young girls in fun and creative astronomy activities.

We have 150 girls from Molo Mhlaba, Chumisa, Isiphiwo, and Luleka primary schools currently enrolled.

The aim of the Astro Club is to:

  • Transmit to children fundamental astronomy concepts;

  • Promote a positive association of astronomy with enjoyable and stimulating activities;

  • Develop the girls' confidence and comfort in approaching scientific subjects, and empower them to pursue their scientific curiosity with assurance;
