Conhecer o Universo (To know the universe), Portugal, March/May/June 2012
Interactive sessions with schools students. The sessions include an overview of modern astronomy with the use of modern tools such as Stellarium, Salsa J and research quality images from Coimbra?s Observatory and Faulkes Telescope Archives. We promote an interactive discussion introducing them to the scientific method.
