The main aim of the organisation’s activity is the popularization of science. We would like to show to young people that science is not only boring and not understandable equations. Our goal is to arouse the curiosity of the universe by planet- and stargazing, popular scientific lectures and colourful stories about the recently discovered worlds. The Antares Foundation organised some sky observations for youngsters and adults. Our members made workshops connecting with astronomy, programming, natural science. We co-operate with local schools, universities and Third Age Universities (adult education). Apart from observations and lectures our work is based on non-formal education methods. The foundation has an experience in the Erasmus+ projects as a partner and the leading side as well.
