"Just wanted to say thank you so much for the great opportunity, I really enjoyed working
with you guys and I learnt a lot. Can you say hi to Zee and Colin and Cath for me and tell them that I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and would love to come back in the summer. Nikki :)"

Committed volunteering can lead to exciting new destinations
Help awaken curiosity

"Do not try to satisfy your vanity by teaching a great many things. Awaken people's curiosity. It is enough to open minds; do not overload them. Put there just a spark. If there is some good inflammable stuff, it will catch fire" - Anatole France


Volunteer feedback:

"I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity of work experience at Thinktank Planetarium. It was a great, hands-on experience and I enjoyed delivering the automated shows and making the subtitles. I would like to thank Mario, Colin and Zee for all their help, and I would be interested in volunteering again in the near future" - Nina Vyas, Sep 2010
