Stars 'r' Us! is a public engagement activity; it's role is to bring our science to the attention of the public. While we are currently planning possible activities for the future, we would encourage schools, colleges and other public organisations to get in touch with us about engaging with the public as we have done over the last decade. For further information about the Stars 'r' Us! exhibit please one or more of the partners below.
