Boussouf, 27-30 March 2014, Constantine
"Portes Ouvertes sur l'Astronomie"

It was a large 3-day operation carried out in collaboration with Constantine's ODEJ during the 2014 Spring recess, and it touched 8 Baladiyas of the Constantine Wilaya (See the map at right). Some 33 planetarium sessions were given for the benefit of some 880 people. Each session was preceded by a initiation class and a guided visit to the astronomy exposition. Quite a lot of astronomical documents (Posters, maps, postcards, games...) were freely distributed to the visiting groups while some were available for sale individually.

An unending flow of kids from some 20 locations in 8 baladiyas of the Constantine Prefectorate.

Initiation classes in basic astronomy were given to all the groups. This needed a mobilisation of the human ressources of the association. Animators were working by shifts. Here's Kheiro at the helm.
