Space Art Contest 2016 is still open and teachers can present their students works june 15th 2016 which means today is the last day for submissions.
Space Art is a project that aims to stimulate very young students (6 to 12 years old) to discover the universe and its beauty. Art is a perfect way to achieve this.
Students should make an image (picture, drawing or painting) and submit it at Space Art's website.
The goal of the European Astronomy Contest Space Art is to stimulate the creativity and independent work of students from European secondary schools, to strengthen and expand their astronomical knowledge and skills, and to help the spread of information technologies in the educational process.
The idea of the Space Art program is to encourage very young students to imagine about the Universe, to learn about astronomy and discover things for themselves by researching information on an astronomical object.
They just have to look for it in the sky, books or the internet and then draw it or make a picture of it using photography or combined techniques.
Space Art is organised jointly by the European Association for Astronomy Education (EAAE) and Universe Awareness (UNAWE). Its aim is to encourage creativity and independent work amongst young students, and to strengthen and expand their astronomical knowledge and creativity. (learn more)
