Our observatory will take you  much further into Astronomy than the usual “guided visit” in a research centre. Above all, we are an educational institution devoted to science communication, especially among children. That’s why we  offer the following services to any organized group of 15 or more people. No previous payment is necessary:

Our science communicators have plenty of teaching experience, and they are available both for daytime and night time activities, almost all year round. A brief call to the spokesperson in charge or the group will allow us to adapt the session to your necessities, expectations and, if applicable, the school curriculum.

We offer an educational method based on games, talks and audiovisuals, including:

  • Science and the scientific method
  • Space science as the context for everything
  • How to watch and understand the sky
  • Celestial bodies, instruments, astronomical scale…
  • Relevance of the Canary Islands

Orientamos el interés hacia la afición astronómica a cualquier edad, proponiendo un itinerario concreto. Pero sobre todo estimulamos el debate y el sentido crítico. Por ejemplo:

  • Diferencia entre astronomía y astrología, ciencia y ciencia-ficción.
  • Cómo entender las últimas noticias sobre ciencia y espacio en TV e Internet.
