One of our most important functions is to share the wonders of the cosmos with the people in our community and state. We do this in a variety of ways.
We work diligently to encourage young people to excel in academics, most especially in science and mathematics. We work closely with schools, libraries and scouting organizations to provide opportunities for observing and learning about astronomy to children, their parents and their teachers.
Supporting The Challenged Members of Our Community
In addition to our work with young people we also work closely with other charitable organizations such as the Muscular Dystrophy Association to provide opportunities for fund raising and observing and education to people less fortunate than ourselves. Amateur astronomy is a great way for the physically challenged to satisfy their desires to participate in, and contribute to, our society.
Assisting Like Minded Organizations
As the largest astronomy club in the area, we also work with other organizations such as the Science Museum Oklahoma and Odyssey Astronomy Club to enhance such organizations' capabilities of sharing the wonders of science and astronomy with the public.
