Astronomy Club

ACS was founded by Bishop Oldham who started by teaching Astronomy to Businessmen more than a century ago. Our founder’s passion was in Astronomy and so is our passion.

Students who join the Astronomy club are interested in science beyond the classroom, what is up in the heavens and aspiring to be scientists. The club provides opportunities to handle telescopes and offers diverse possibilities for creative thinking.
