Social Mission Think Earth

Think Earth Think Sky

With its determination to expand children’s basic knowledge in sciences, THINK EARTH  establishes the project “THINK EARTH  THINK SKY” to promote scientific thinking and support children’s endless imagination in science. Modern scientific knowledge has been intertwined with traditional folk wisdom in the organization of such programs as the sighting of the total solar eclipse on the 24th of October, 1995, the watching for the clash of Schumacher Comet 9 and Jupiter, and the Future Astronomers Project.
