World Space Week
World Space Week is being celebrated worldwide form 4 to 10 October as a way of giving tribute to science and technology, and their contribution to the betterment of the human condition.
During World Space Week we had a lot of interesting activities in our school library, inside and outside the classrooms.
PYP students helped decorate the school library and made a giant rocket and papier mache Solar System. They also painted planets on pebbles which can later be used as a Montessorri toy for learning about the Solar System.
At the beginning of the week, MYP0 visited the Zagreb Astronomical Observatory where they watched the presentation and got a chance to look through a big telescope. Here you can read more about there visit.
PYP4 had the opportunity to come to the school library and listen to the interesting lecture held by dr. Vibor Jelić, astrophysicist from the Ruđer Bošković Institute in Zagreb. Mr. Jelić was trying to answer the biggest question with the main topic of his presentation Are We Alone in the Universe.
During the week, students and teachers were invited to visit a small exhibition in the school library and read about space from our space books collection.
It was a great way of promoting space science!
