UNAWE partner project is back on the road: its project is organising four simultaneous expeditions to bring the wonders of the sky to children in five countries in South America during November and December 2015.
The Constellation Project comprises the creation of a network of 20 schools across six countries in South America, allowing them to share their fascination with the sky through hands-on activities and fun experiments.
Constellation started activities in schools in Colombia in early November, and in the past few weeks they visited schools in Bogota, Medellín, Antioquía and Pereira. This month, project collaborators have also hosted activities in Peru and in Brazil. Check out the video on the Constellation Project and see if you catch a glimpse of the UNAWE Earth Ball:
And there is more to come: from the 23 November to 14 December they will be visiting schools in Chile and Argentina, from Chile Chico and Cariquíma to Cordoba, Mendoza and Salta. We wish the Constellation team all the best!
