ICG science knowledge disseminated abroad. II. Engaging primary school pupils.

Claudia Maraston also visited an italian primary school and held a lecture on "Planets, Stars and Galaxies". The lecture was intentionally held before the pupils - about 10 years old - start to learn about astronomy. The little students were extremely engaged and several of them consider now to become space scientists in their future lives, such as Gaia, pictured with Maraston from ICG and math teacher Lombardo.Pupils after the lecturePupils after the lectureEducating future space scientistsEducating future space scientists
