COVID-19 in Amazonas- Astronomy strikes back

Target location: Brazil, all Portuguese-speaking countries, and Japan.

Target audience: Social isolation affects all people of different ages. Therefore, the project was formatted in such a way that the following audiences were served:

2: Children of the 6th. year until the 9th. year of primary school;

3: Young people who are in high school;

4: Adults in Youth and Adult Education;

The project is supported by the following Brazilian entities: ABP, FAPEAM, MCTIC, CNPq, UEA, Planetarium Digital of Manaus and Parintins.
