Building diversity through accelerating curiosity and developing creative minds

Home to Newfoundland's only professional telescope, the observatory was opened in 2012 and is now welcoming about a thousand visitors per year, with special programming available for youth groups.

The observatory is a natural tie-in to the B.Sc. degree program in physics at Grenfell Campus which is focused on subatomic physics and astrophysics.
