The Fireballs in the Sky exhibits were getting around WA and SA in 2015 and we’ll preparing to share them again with libraries and community centres soon. If you’d like to host an exhibit for a month, email us at fireballs@curtin.edu.au. We’ll pack and send the exhibit to you free of charge.

The Fireballs in the Sky display was created for us by Scitech, and is easy to transport and set up. We’re touring the exhibits to local libraries and community centres around the country to share the awesome science going on in our own backyards, and let people know how to get involved!

 Here’s a list of where the exhibit has been in 2015.

“The Fireballs in the Sky Exhibition was a wonderful addition to the Dandaragan Community Resource Centre display space. 
The students from the Dandaragan Primary School came down to the CRC to participate in an astronomy activity and the Exhibition.
We thoroughly enjoyed hosting the students. They were very engaged and interested in the research. They asked heaps of questions and I was rather impressed with their space knowledge.
 I explained all about the new fireball app they can download on their phones plus showed them the Desert Fireball Network website where they can go and find lots of activities and read the scientists latest blogs. We have encouraged the students to come down to the centre after school to utilise our computers to check out the website.

Dandaragan CRC and Fireballs in the SKy were also featured in the Central Midlands & Coastal Advocate.

“The information was fascinating and images were enthralling. A number of school visits and general public enjoyed the display.” – Louise, Manager Library Services.

“… it is a fantastic display!  We had a lot of people stop and spend time reading the panels and taking the details of the app.  We promoted that the Fireballs display was up in the library via our website and our Facebook page.  Whilst we had the display we tied in space movie screenings (Interstellar and Space Chimps) and offered a number of self-paced activities (colouring pages/find-a-words/activity sheets and unstructured craft) for kids/families to come along to and utilise in conjunction with the display.” – Lisa Bell, Library Officer, Onkaparinga Libraries
