Discover our star: The Sun.  Observation of sunspots and solar eruptions with a solar telescope and electronic tablets. This workshop is also supported by a multimedia presentation. To observe the sun safely, is it possible?
With the help of our unique approach and a solar telescope, the students discover and observe the sun safely with a science instrument especially developed for observing the sun’s features.
This workshop comes right to your school and present a science instrument dedicated to the observation of the sun. Students learn about the evolution of optical instruments through the ages and how they transformed our knowledge of the Universe. The workshop is also supported by a multimedia presentation. Discover our star, the Sun. What is it made of, why does it shine? How does it compare to other stars of our galaxy. What are the different features that we can observe at the solar surface? These are some of the questions answered with the presentation.
To facilitate the use of ITC, ASTER proposes to teachers, various pre and post-visit activities. Explore science and technology in a concrete and fun way with ASTER.
