Her passion for astronomy was ignited in 2009 when she first visited the Planetarium in Accra. She has been deeply involved with the Planetarium ever since, and has gained a wealth of experience in selecting, adapting, developing and delivering astronomy presentations and activities in an informal education setting.

Sarah is currently the Weekend and Special events Coordinator at the Planetarium, organising weekend events for children, families and the general public, as well as some special events such as teacher’s workshops and school visits.

Sarah is a founder member and Secretary of the Astronomical Society of Ghana, as well as the National Coordinator for Ghana for Astronomers Without Borders (AWB).

She is a member the PRAGSAC project team (Promoting Radio Astronomy in Ghana through School Visits and Astronomy Clubs) which uses astronomy to promote STEM and hands-on science through school astronomy clubs.
