About this event
Foundation of the project Interplanetary Travel:
To awaken scientific vocations in girls and boys and to strengthen the figure of women in the world of scientific culture.
Our main objetive is to awake the interest in science and space through different leisure educational activities, so that they may end up studying science in college.
Who is it for?
- Showings for Families (Adults and children over 6 years old).
- Showings for children (from 6 to 12 years old).
- Showings for elderly and disabled people.
How much time is it?
It takes about an hour and a half, including the handing of signed astronaut diplomas.
What is it?
It is and educational activity designed to promote family activities and expand their knowledge about Space and the Universe. They do this by actively participating in a sensory and interactive journey during which they will visit the different objects that can be found in Space.
Students (or teachers) may choose between different “Space Missions”, to learn about the Solar System, astronauts’ life or about the different spacecrafts send to explore the Universe.
With Astronaut Lili’s explanations and the multimedia and sensory elements, the learning will be complete, fun, and dynamic.
“An adventure through knowledge and space that they will never forget”
- Promote women participation in science.
- Learn about the Solar System.
- Share an activity that will motivate everyone to keep talking and investigating about it.
- Promote science familiar activities.
- Arouse the curiosity for knowledge about space and the planetary sciences.
- Activate the sensory memory.
To travel to the Space from the classroom, we project a video designed specifically for this activity. Simulating a spaceship and thanks to special effects, sensory material, 3D glasses and Captain Lili, the children will activate their imagination and live a real Space adventure.
To settle the knowledge, students will touch and interact with material related to the places we visit. In this way, they associate what they touch with the new knowledge, and their sensory memory is activated.
Captain Lili’s basic rules for education and science dissemination are:
- Rigorous and clear information, with the vocabulary adapted to the age of the public.
- Activating creativity and imagination. Awake their interest in investigating about the topics treated during the journey.
- Children should feel free. Our journey through knowledge and Space is a trip that children do freely, with no pressure at all. Children sit at the floor, apart from adults, and they are free to move around and interact with the sensory elements of our trip.
- Activate their sensory memory: Neural connexions in children’s brains are constantly being created, activating their sensory and photographic memory will help them assimilate and remember the new knowledge about Space.
At the end of the show, Lili Astronaut will hand an astronaut diploma to all the participants. As a proof of the succeeded mission.
Each mission has its own diploma.
- Mission 1 “A Journey through the Solar System”
- Mission 2 “Journey to the International Space Station (ISS) and the Exoplanets” (THIS EVENT)
- Mission 3 “The Apollo Missions, a trip to the Moon” (Season 2018/2019)
- Mission 4 “The role of women in Space” (Season 2018/2019)
The contents of every mission are adapted to the age of the public.
