- To use the excitement that astronomy engenders to increase public understanding of science and scientific methods and to make clear that science is a pathway to discovery, not just a collection of facts.
- To capitalize on the close involvement of astronomy with technology and instrumentation to contribute to training the technical work force.
- To increase science awareness in communities to stimulate the scientific curiosity of learners from a young age to encourage learners to study science at a tertiary level.
