We became part of the UNAWE family!

We are a UNAWE project!

UNAWE (Universe Awareness for Young Children) is an international outreach activity that inspires young disadvantaged children with the beauty and grandeur of the universe. During the International Year of Astronomy 38 countries became involved in UNAWE activities, with a network of more than 500 members. 

UNAWE combines the latest astronomical images with rich folkloric tradition to enthuse young children. Astronomy is a unique discipline for motivating and challenging young minds, imbuing them with an appreciation of both science and culture. 

Why is this useful? Increasingly, research shows that science should be brought to children as early as possible for them to like it.

Many thanks to Dr Carolina Odman for welcoming us to the UNAWE family!
