Star observations and activities for educational institutions

It is impossible not to be impressed by the enthusiasm of children and boys, when they are exposed for the first time to the sight of the lunar crater, the moons of Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and even the sunspots. The cries of enthusiasm manage to move us every time.


Schools and community centers that wish to hold astronomy days and evenings for students, contact us for a proposal. The activity is fascinating, enriching and unforgettable. It is also suitable as an activity for one or two whole days of astronomy. 

Solar system model

Using a huge model (a 64 square meter carpet) of the solar system developed in "Song of the Stars", the participants will get to know in a clear and tangible way the world we live in, the planets (the participants also hold physical planets that we bring), their speed, their orbits, their appearances The moon (full and missing moon), the space station, and much more when the participants are activated and dynamic - so much so that some of them will feel as if they were real stars for a moment. The activity is delivered in a very experiential and picturesque way.

What do you eat in space?

A culinary astronomical experience

In the 1970s, astronaut John Young managed to smuggle a meat sandwich into space - an act that NASA did not really like, because it could endanger the delicate instruments with the breadcrumbs that float in the air in the absence of gravity. So what do astronauts eat on space missions? And what will happen The food for 6-8 months of those who will fly to Mars in the future? We will bring the foods that are approved for use in space, we will explain and demonstrate in an interesting and enriching way the reasons why astronauts eat special and limited food, and then the participants will prepare a satisfying meal from the products themselves.

You flew rockets into the sky


Using air pressure, water and a (safety) rocket device, we will fly rockets into the sky up to a height of 100 meters. But before that we will explain about the rocket propulsion, and why it is used when we come to fly a spaceship outside the earth, the differences between rockets that are able to carry people to the moon and rockets to satellites. We bring all the equipment, and the participants each in turn will fly a rocket and see who can fly it higher.

*You can also add an option where the participants build the rockets themselves. We will make sure to pass on precise instructions to the responsible team.

Watching sunspots


Activity intended for daytime hours. Using a telescope with a special filter, we observe the sun and the spots that appear on its surface, which are usually larger than the earth, while explaining the phenomenon, how it occurs, do sunspots affect the earth, what are the solar storms that can even cause power outages, damage satellites, How the sun is responsible for the northern lights and more.


On certain days when it is also possible to observe the moon during the daytime, we can enrich the curiosity of the participants by also observing the moon and its craters.


Astronomical crafting station and games


A station where the participants will be able to create their own models of the solar and lunar system, draw, solve a large number of words from the world of astronomy and try to assemble an astronomical puzzle that has only nine parts, but is considered the most difficult in the world. And there are also prizes and trophies. (including complete craft kits).

The sky is not the limit - but only the starting point


A frontal lecture that deals with space exploration accompanied by a presentation, with spectacular photos, in which we will understand the unimaginable size of the universe, what stars are made of, how they are born and what happens when a star dies, what are the methods for discovering planets in distant solar systems and how long will it take humanity to reach the nearest star to the solar system. A fascinating journey that will open for students a window to a world full of curiosity and mystery.
