This is the intermediate level with The Duke of Edinburgh’s Science and Technology Skills astronomy award.
We will expect about 2 hours of study per week on the Silver Award level. Most, if not all of the information you require can be found in popular astronomy and space science books available from the library and on the internet. We will expect more detail in your answers than was required for the Bronze Award.
We strongly advise against cutting and pasting from the internet. This is known as plagiarism and will not be accepted by us.
You should be considering including more in depth notes or paragraphs and include your own drawings than provided for the Bronze level. What is important to us is that you understand what you present to us, rather than presenting us with lots of writing which is not understood by you.
We will be discussing with you the information you present to us in order to check you understand the area of study.
Remember, we do not require an essay; simple neat notes are acceptable to us.
