Activities will include school workshops, cataloguing resources, heritage loan boxes, family events, research, exhibitions, heritage trail, online observatory, translation work and a DVD.

A range of partners have supported the development phase of the project – including the Penllergare Trust, University of Glamorgan, Swansea Astronomical Society, Powysland Museum and Penmaes School.  These and other organizations are now being invited to participate in the delivery phase which will run for two years to December 2010.
