What is EuroVO-AIDA/WP5?

EuroVO-AIDA/WP5 is a project developed within the framework of the European Virtual Observatory (EuroVO) with the aim of diffusing EuroVO data and software to the public, in particular students, teachers and astronomy enthusiasts.

EuroVO-AIDA/WP5 offers use cases, pedagogical units, and simplified professional software that will allow a taste of the emotion of scientific research even to those approaching astronomy for the first time or simply wishing to wander between stars.

The educational material of EuroVO-AIDA/WP5 has been designed specifically for teachers in support of an effective presentation of astronomy in the classroom. However, amateur astronomers too will appreciate both the EuroVO-AIDA/WP5 software tools that simulate the night sky giving useful information during observations, or during their planning, and the simple and intuitive access and visualization of EuroVO-AIDA/WP5 data.
