History of astronomy in pakistan l.jpg

History of Astronomy in Pakistan

  • Department of Astronomy was Established in 1914

  • First Telescope was installed in 1924

  • The department of Astronomy was closed in 1988

  • The building of Astronomy is Occupied

  • Dome and Telescope are saved to date

  • Impact

    • In 2004, “Punjab Textbook Board” included a complete chapter on Astronomy & Space Sciences in their Science Textbooks of Class 1 to Class 8

    • A curriculum is being discussed for class 9 & 10 to teach Astronomy as an independent subject

    • In 2004, Higher Education Commission has designed a curriculum for Space Sciences at bachelor and masters level
