Project title: Astro party
Project leader: Mr. Ivo Jokin
“Astroparty” is held every year and its ninth edition was held in this year. The first Astroparty was held in 2005, when it was organized at regional level, but this year its range has become wider. More and more people are showing interest. Thanks to it a lot of new Astronomy clubs have been started at the regional level; the party itself rouses interest in Astronomy as a science and as a subject in school as well. When taking part in the party students gain more skills both in theory itself and in making watching experiments of space. They learn how to analyse and describe such experiments. These activities are now held at schools competitions in Astronomy.
Astroparty contributes to the development of the regional and national policy of the Municipality of Dolna Mitropolia, the Pleven region and Bulgaria. It makes extra-curricular activities more attractive to students and makes the landmarks by the Danube riverside more popular in the region. It is included in the National calendar for extra-curricular activities of Ministry of Education and Science for the sixth year.
