Watch April 8th recording below:


Astronomy is an interdisciplinary science in the natural science discipline. For science communicators and popular science educators, we are always looking for approaches to motivate the learners, especially students with special education needs (SEN), to learn science effectively and apply it to daily life. We can explore the different angles of astronomy, such as Astro-Music (integrating science and art) and visualizing scientific theories into a hands-on experience. This STEAM learning approach with user-centered design can arouse audiences' interests and learning needs.
