 Educate the next Generation

June 30th primarily is about asteroid education. Asteroids are not just hazardous to our planet; they provide us the building blocks to life by transporting them to Earth. Whether you decide to organise an event for young school children, higher educated students or just for your friends, we can provide you with the necessary tools to execute a successful event.
