Centre Astronòmic del Pedraforca Saldes
"Cuiol Nature" Let's make science experience
Highly committed to the quality of our activities (environmental disclosure and discovery of the Cosmos ). We combine our double training: artistic (performing arts) and scientific (biology), so that the activities become fun, instructive and provocative experiences. In 2019, the College of Biologists of Catalonia (CBC) awarded Cuiol Nature the "bioentrepreneur" award in recognition of the work of disseminating science with the integration of the performing arts.
Cosmos discovery experiences
We manage the Pedraforca Astronomical Center ( Saldes town hall facility ) and offer a regular program of astronomy activities for families.
The activities last about 90 minutes and have two parts:
- Guided digital planetarium session: A space simulator takes us on a virtual journey through the universe, with images projected on a 180º dome and a guide who explains. You can ask any questions you deem appropriate.
- Observation with a telescope: We will be able to observe live some of the objects that have been discussed in the digital planetarium session and we will take the opportunity to consolidate given concepts.
- Recognition of constellations with laser: Science leaves a space in mythology: enjoying the quality night sky of Saldes, we will identify constellations and learn about some of their mythological legends!
Science a la carte or "to take away"
A la carte astronomy (ideal for families)
If you are a group of 10 or more people, you can order your astronomy activity. You can also choose the topic that interests you the most in the planetarium session.
Astronomy "to take away"
For those groups (schools, museums, individuals) that cannot travel to the Centre, we have an inflatable planetarium and a portable projector... science comes to you! It can also be a good birthday present, had you thought?
