SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 24 Jan. (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo de Tenerife, through the Autonomous Organization of Museums (OAMC), has resumed the astronomical camping activity at the Museum of Science and the Cosmos (MCC), which will be aimed at schools. In this way, the little ones will acquire knowledge of astronomy by spending a whole night in this center.
The Island Councilor for Museums, Concepción Rivero, explained that this proposal is “an opportunity for children to change their environment, going from the school environment to the museum environment, but without stopping learning” and stressed that they will enjoy a night at the museum, while different aspects of science are formed and discovered. Likewise, Rivero added that they are very happy to be able to resume an activity as demanded as this after the break caused by the pandemic.
During the development of the activity, school groups will be able to enjoy the renovated planetarium, which has been updated with cutting-edge technologies, with the aim of offering a high-quality experience adapted to all audiences. This recently reopened space has new seats for a better view of the dome and areas reserved for people with reduced mobility have been created.
The camping, which has been taking place for several years now at the MCC, will be guided by several monitors and the participants will be able to organize themselves into teams to carry out the activities. With the help of young astrophysicists and the technical means of the center, planetarium and telescopes, the opportunity to start studying the sky will be offered.
Museos de Tenerife reminds that the school groups that go to the camp must bring warm clothes, a sleeping bag, dinner, hygiene items and specific medicines. For its part, the entity will provide both breakfast and materials for games, observations and workshops.
