    DIVE IN THE SKY

    The "Dive in the Sky" project with the coordination of Turkey was held with the participation of five countries (Austria, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Portugal and Turkey) that have developed activities about astronomy to increase students' interest in science and mathematics, to increase their knowledge about the night sky and the universe, and to encourage students to be scientists in the future. The project also included cultural and linguistic activities to raise awareness to European countries and different cultures. The students used new technologies and produced works about light pollution (having received 8 awards in the Dark Skies Rangers contests), the Sun, planetary systems and deep sky, enhancing their ICT skills and their understanding of astronomy. We also carried out astronomical observations, one astronomy dictionary, cartoons about an astronomer, lesson plans to teach astronomy and English, a mouse pad and posters for the meetings in each country. The students presented the works in English, which has improved their communication skills and the astronomical vocabulary. All works and activities were posted on the blog www.diveinthesky.net
