Poly’s Stargazing Club Heads for the Stars

Polytechnic School’s Stargazing Club, founded by Ziko E. ’23, Rebekah H. ’23, and Cristina B. ’23, was created when these three juniors discovered a shared love of the night sky. In Advisory this past fall, they decided to create a space to express and develop their interests with other students. They are currently organizing a stargazing retreat for club members with other exciting plans in the works.

Q: What inspired you to start this club?
A: We all love stargazing, and we wanted to share that with the community. Also, threats of air pollution have impacted our ability to see stars across the globe. One of our goals is to bring awareness to this issue in every single meeting.

Q: What do you discuss at your meetings?
A: So far we have discussed our favorite stargazing locations, a potential stargazing retreat, and more!

Q: Why is stargazing important to you?
A: Stargazing is important because it emphasizes appreciating natural beauty and sheds light on areas of nature that are in danger from pollution.
