Call a star by your name

Education Support Foundation “Noosphere” launched a digital educational course in astronomy “Opening in a week”… As part of the course, schoolchildren in astronomy lessons discover variable stars, the brightness of which can change over time, or even asteroids.

Especially for the course, the Noosphere team has developed a set of teaching aids. During classes, students receive remote support from astronomers, as well as online access to the best domestic and foreign telescopes.

During the testing of the educational course, young astronomers have already discovered more than two dozen variable stars. The students recorded these data in a specialized international catalog, assigning their surname to the discovered objects.

To join the course, you must leave an application. This can be done by a representative of the school this link.
