Education

In this section we will provide in the future lesson material aimed at teachers which use the context of the search and characterization of exoplanets as background. The lessons will cover curricular subjects such as physics, chemistry, maths, biology and astronomy.

If you need any information about the search and characterization of exoplanets or would like to visit our institute with your school class please contact our media & outreach team.

You plan to make a real observation of the stars? The Stellarium Gornergrat offers you several possibilities.
