School Complex in Stobierna is composed of two
main school levels: primary school and junior high school. The primary
school attendants are six-year-old to twelve-year-old students,
whereas, the junior high schools students are thirteen to sixteen years
old. The second type of school puts more emphasis on Science (including
Physics and Mathematics).
The students of these schools are
interested in astronomical observations, thus they are eager to take
part in special classes concerning such issues. Schools organized
special classes associated with the astronomical observations of the
sky. We organised a series of educational trips to places from which
students observed the sky: in the stars, planets and satellites. These
activities were integrated into daily school activities in the field of
physics and astronomy. Because many schools participated in the project,
we organized interschool competitions. Moreover school organized a
series of competitions related to astronautics. For the youngest
students there was a drawing contest, a contest for older students,
multimedia presentations related to space flight and the history of the

ARISS offers an opportunity for students to experience
the excitement of Amateur Radio by talking directly with crewmembers
onboard the International Space Station. Teachers, parents and
communities see, first hand, how Amateur Radio and crewmembers on ISS
can energize youngsters' interest in science, technology and learning.
