The Department of Physics and Astronomy at the Faculty of Natural & Applied Sciences, Notre Dame University – Louaize (NDU - Main Campus) hosts High School students in its premises during the months of March, April & May of this academic year 2016-2017.

Grade 9, secondary school students, and teachers are encouraged to visit the premises of the Department of Physics & Astronomy. The visit starts with a walk through campus to the Faculty building where a short lecture will be given on the career options made possible by a physics undergraduate degree. This will be followed by a tour of the physics laboratories and the Farid & Moussa Rafael Observatory. The whole activity takes less than 2 hours. Students usually arrive at 9am. If the number of students exceeds 40-50, then they will be divided into two groups.

By the end of the visit, students and teachers will have learned about the career options in physics, the difference between astrology and astronomy, and the different facilities available in the department.

The Department of Physics & Astronomy cordially invites you and your students to participate in this unique activity. If you are interested, kindly provide us with the number of students wishing to visit the Observatory two weeks ahead, and a contact person from the school with his/her mobile number.

Kindly note that the Physics & Astronomy Department also organizes observing nights during which you will use the largest telescope in the Arab Middle East to view the Moon, Mars, Saturn, and deep-sky objects. (Depending on the moon phase and weather conditions).

Should you need reservation or further clarification, please do not hesitate to contact:

Dr. Charbel Zgheib (, 03/070846) or Liaison Officer: Mrs. Nayla Basbous (, 03-781069).


We look forward to welcoming you at NDU.
