Public Outreach

For the broader public, Keck Observatory’s monthly Astronomy Talk Series and Open House events encourage the public to learn in depth about the research done using Keck Observatory’s 10-meter telescopes on Maunakea. Other public events, such as science nights at the libraries and Solar System Walks in Waimea, offer individuals of all ages learning activities in astronomy, science and engineering. These outreach events, coupled with Keck Observatory’s other educational programs, reach more than 50,000 people annually.
