Astronomy, like plastic arts or literature, can provoke the creative act by moving the imagination and curiosity of young people.

During the four meetings of this workshop, astronomy enthusiasts and those curious to explore the starry night sky will travel millions of light years, starting from Earth and stopping in the most distant galaxies of the Universe.

The fourth workshop of the astronomy course will be held at the Astronomical Observatory "Admiral Vasile Urseanu" where the children will make their own astronomical observations under the guidance of Adrian Sonka, the course reader and the observer coordinator.
