Recently at SCOB
Its been sometime since we posted any updates on this blog. Since the last post many changes and events have took place. In particular our dear friend and one of the original members of scobbers, SK (ruijie) moved on to other career opportunities. However, several new colleagues have joined the team and allowing scobbers to grow and expand. I have therefore finally got around to continuing what SK started and once again chronicle the events and happenings at SCOB, in addition to our other online updates (facebook, twitter etc.). To begin with let me share some photos of one of our most recent event, the ASPAC Science Centre Conference. Hosting this international event, took considerable planning and preparation. So much so that we closed the observatory for three weeks last month, as many of our scobbers were needed for other duties, in particular facilitating some of the sessions and providing the all important entertainment. The opening ceremony took alot of coordination and practice, mainly due to the number of people involved. This included a spectacular multicultural dance routine.
