In our seventh episode of the Voices of Local Leaders series, we interview Henry Slomba, a local high school student, artist and amateur astronomer. As highlighted by every science educator in this interview series, the use of art is a really powerful approach to engage people into science, particularly youth. And Henry is a great example of that. Fascinated by science fiction and fantasy, he discovered the marvels of the cosmos during middle school. As his interest in Astronomy grew, Henry started exploring the night sky through his telescope lenses around his neighborhood, an open invitation to the curiosity of people walking down the street or just passing by. Even though everyone admires the stars and the Moon, Henry finds really rewarding to see the excitement of people’s faces when they are able to see details of the lunar surface or even other #planets for the first time in their lives. We really praise Henry for his enthusiasm in sharing his Astronomy knowledge with his neighbors and sparking their curiosity about the cosmos!
