Reflection: PolyAstro SideWalk

The day started with us carrying our stuff from the Alumni Clubhouse since block 73 is on lock down on Sundays  We waited at the LSCT foyer for the minibus to arrive and to our surprise, it came on time:)

Although we could help out for less than 3 hours due to time constraints, It was a fun experience for all of us, being able to share our knowledge about astronomy and seeing how people were amazed to see Jupiter and Saturn through the telescope for the first time. There was also a kid who asked politely if he could use the scope. After a few seconds of peeking, he went on shouting “I CAN SEE SATURN! I CAN SEE SATURN!” then went off to look for his parents and drag them to take a look too haha. It’s all these small little things that make us feel meaningful in what we do and gives us the passion to carry on. This event was made possible thanks to Melcolm and also those from Singapore Polytechnic who came to helped out.
