Gary Quinn signing about the planets

 A ground-breaking project has created over 100 new signs for astronomy, from signs for each of the planets, to signs for concepts such as black holes and red giants.

Join Dr Audrey Cameron of the Scottish Sensory Centre, Gary Quinn of Heriot Watt University and Tania Johnston of the Royal Observatory Edinburgh to find out how the signs have been developed and see the signs in action through astronomy activities.  

A tour of the observatory will also be included. 

BSL / English interpretation available. All welcome!
