Astronomy is a great subject for students and youth groups to explore. Little to no equipment is necessary, and there are lots of resources available on this website and all over the internet. Few people ever forget the first time they saw Saturn or the moon through a scope.

There are many astronomy clubs in Canada. Many clubs run public viewing sessions or have people who can visit groups. Also, young people are welcome to go to meetings or observing sessions.
