With us

 

Portable Planetarium

The development of Planetarium on the Go in schools, especially those far away from major cities, will open this way of learning for more children. It can travel to a school, museum, library or any public place, even in the most remote locations.

 

Teaching Astronomy

Planetariums are the world's astronomy classrooms and theaters of public science education. They both inspire and educate people of all ages about our surroundings, the Earth itself and our place in the Universe, and they are often a place in which young people become enthused to follow a scientific career.

 

Science Education

In a time when quality science education is more important than ever, a scientifically literate public is an essential part of the progress of any country.

Interactive events - Observe through a telescope

Spectators feel like they are part of space exploration. If the weather permits we observe through a telescope various objects of the night sky after sunset or the sun through a special solar filter during daytime.
