Astronomical Class at the Planetarium

  • Crimson Education
  • Moscow, Russia
Volunteering/Community Service/Social Entreprenuership Research Opportunity Skill Building


The astronomical circle of the Moscow Planetarium has been working since 1934. Many of his graduates today are leading scientists, whose names are known throughout the world. "The Planetarium has unique equipment both for the city and for the country, which allows children to study the starry sky,” says Yaroslav Turilov. - Great opportunities for learning allow circle members to participate and win in the city and regional astronomy Olympiads. Thus, lectures for senior astronomical students are delivered by professors of Moscow State University. Classes are held in the Big Star Hall, in the observatory and on our astronomical site. Admission to the first course of the Astronomical Circle is held for students of grades 6-7 and is based on the results of interviews, which will begin in September.

Classes are held once a week from the beginning of October until the end of May. In total there are 29 lessons lasting 2 academic hours.
