Európai észlelési verseny indul robotteleszkópokkal

Minden középiskolás és egyetemista figyelnébe ajánlom Menelaos Sotiriou
szervezésében induló Sky Watch Contest európai észlelési versenyt:

Rövid áttekintés (bővebb infok a honlapon és emailben):

The SKY WATCH project aims to introduce the European youth in the truly
wondrous world of science and technology by engaging school and university
students and young science amateurs in escalating, challenging and
innovative multidisciplinary ‘Science Games’ combining creativity,
intelligence and scientific quest. SKYWATCH introduces a pan-European
Science Communication and Celebration Initiative, which will reach its
peak during the European Science Week 2005, comprising two main
interrelated events:

(1) A two-phase European Science Contest (concluding to a central European
Exhibition and a Best Projects Award Ceremony), and

(2) series of popular science distance learning courses (16 ‘Science Days’

To perform project activities young people will be given access to an
existing global network of 5 remotely controlled robotic telescopes though
this innovative web-based platform. The young participants will organize
teams (school classes, groups of students, etc.) and design, develop and
implement their science projects, comprising astronomical observations
with the use of the telescopes and under the guidance and the continuous
support of experts.

The SKYWATCH web-portal is launched for this scope providing access to the
network of robotic telescopes, advanced collaboration and communication
tools and to educational material of high added value, acting as on-line
campus for scientific quests. An Integrated Publicity Campaign covering 28
European and other Countries will be implemented. At least 10,000
secondary school students of 28 European Countries, 1,000 university
students, 50,000 visitors of science centres, parks and museums and 5.000
visitors (mainly school students) of the central exhibition will
participate in project’s activities. The establishment of a Virtual
Community of young people, wider public and the scientific community is
the ultimate project objective.
