Edu Act Organization
The two highlights of the year were the Universe Storytelling event and the coding event. We try our best with children, inviting them to know more about fundamental knowledge focused on science and technology while aiming to raise the desire for this area of science. The Universe Storytelling event had a great impact on our country. Kids were involved in different stories about the universe, they took part in discussions, and had a time of creation and drawings. At the end of the activity, we presented our next plan to the kids, preparing them for short films about the universe. This initiative invoked the pupils’ contests about who would discuss the planets, specifically the Earth’s planet. In the presence of local media as well as in close cooperation with elementary school teachers, it will be possible to create an Astro club at the school. This will be an opportunity to share and impact the society around us. This first event has been a success and we believe that these kinds of activities encourage pupils to love science and our planet.

At present, this means the development of 750 children aged between 3 and 14 years. To our greatest joy, this figure is continuously increasing.
