The Life Skills team of the Homs Culture Directorate, in collaboration with the Syrian Astronomical Society, launched the "Little Astronomy" project, which includes morning theoretical activities and evening activities for teenagers in the province.
The four-day project includes "Me and the Solar Group" lectures to observe the sun using modern telescopes and "Where to" a lecture with nightly practical application on trends, "Our Imagination at Night", "I am an astronaut" and a series competitions and astronomical workshops. Including handwork, painting and telescope design, at the end of the project, attendance certificates and cards will be distributed to the first winners of the competitions.
The director of the Children's Department, Saba Wassouf said in a statement to the corresponding SANA that the project consists of 6 events, each lecture including a daytime monitoring of the sun and night of the planets and stars and practical application under the supervision of the Syrian Astronomical Society indicating that at the end of the project will design solar panels and draw the design steps beyond the design A sponge astronaut and boxes to be displayed in an integrated exhibition representing the project product.
Young Abd al-Karim al-Sibai, Ali al-Saleh and Anas Khadooj expressed their pleasure in this experiment and their interest in identifying trends and monitoring the state of stars in the night sky through the telescope.
Salma Ali and Rawa Al-Ahmad and Elias Bitar pointed out that this experiment allowed them to know the mechanism of rotation of the planets around the Sun and the way the Moon circulates around the Earth and its survival in orbit around the Earth, all the data that led to the development of the physical laws necessary to place the satellites in specific orbits.
