Workshop: Who said you can't see the stars here?

You are bound to have stared up at the sky many times, wondering where that twinkling that is seen so far away could be, or on the basis of what logic we can see it moving up there. In this workshop we will learn what constellations are, we will review the movements of our planet to better understand the changes we perceive in the sky and, to put into practice what we have learnt, we will draw a planisphere on an umbrella.

Registration in advance via the Tabakalera Medialab website.

Languages: Basque, Spanish
