Do you know what is an exoplanet? Have you ever thought about traveling to a planet with two suns? Would you like to meet a planet with an ocean of boiling lava?

The universe is full of interesting celestial bodies. Some are scary and some have properties far beyond what we can imagine! Thousands of such stars have already been discovered in our galaxy, but there is still a lot to explore!

In this workshop, participants will learn how cosmologists analyze image data to discover planets outside our solar system.

Understand how compost works and learn how its construction depends on processes and knowledge from the natural world.

Discover the complex environment formed in the compost of growing worms, where earthworms and microorganisms turn food waste into compost and humus.

During the live broadcast, a microscope and digital magnifying glass will be used to explore this delicate ecosystem, and participants will learn about the care needed to ensure a healthy environment that enables balance among its inhabitants.

Did you know that in addition to providing an interesting follow-up to the biogeochemical cycles, homemade composting contributes to reducing landfill spaces, and reduces soil, groundwater and air pollution?
