We are a team of dreamers from Severodonetsk Secondary school #12, Lugansk region, which consists of the most active teachers and schoolchildren. Since childhood we have been fond of astronomy and space in general.

On the basis of our school we want to create an astronomic center “Astrovisium” which will consist of:

  • Meteorological and astronomical sites;
  • Skybarium where lessons and various open-air events will be held;
  • School Planetarium;
  • Museum of Cosmonautics.

Every year children from different schools take part in competitions and various astronomy contests which, unfortunately, is not enough. Ukraine has a huge potential for the development of astronautics. In our opinion, the problem is in  the fact that school astronomy knowledge is purely theoretical. This problem can be solved if since the very childhood, the students together with teachers and parents will explore the world around them. All starts with a small one. As a child, a person understands why the wind is blowing, and in his youth – how stars are formed. With the development of technology humanity every year has more and more opportunities to explore the universe. That is why everyone deserves to see the stars.

Now you can influence the future of our country. Join us and support the“Astrovisium” project.

Before the beginning of the operation of the “Astrovisium” Center, we gathered a great team, bought a projector, a laptop. We are planning to equip the sky screen for Skybarium, to install a solar clock on the astronomy site, a vertical quadrant, a frame for painting constellations at our own expense.

Our “Astrovisium” is created to promote a scientific approach, to establish and adjust interdisciplinary connections, to form a single scientific picture of the world. On the basis of this center, observation and exploration of the starry sky and weather conditions will be conducted. Students will be engaged in scientific activities within the framework of the Small Academy of Sciences of Ukraine and other All-Ukrainian and international competitions. In addition, our volunteer students will train all those who wish, they will hold master classes and quests related to natural sciences. In order to facilitate the scheduling of visiting the center, we are planning to create an electronic registration, where everyone can choose a convenient time for the visit.

Subsequently, we will be able to distribute our experience in other cities of Ukraine.

First of all, we will try to popularize science in our region. Secondly, we will increase the interaction between teachers, students and the entire community. If our center is going to be visited, then we are planning to add Experimentarium, where in real time we will demonstrate various physical laws and nature phenomena, create artificial clouds and volcanoes, generate electric energy, we will be able to find out our weight on other planets and much more.

In addition, we will sptead our experience so that soon such small scientific centers will begin to exist in all areas of our country.

For successful launch of the project we need to purchase: a telescope, a dome for mobile planetarium, an air supercharger, a spherical mirror, a sedimentation barometer, a barometer, a hygrometer, an  anemometer, a thermometer, folding chairs and folding tables.
