In this news we just want to remind you all that the deadline to participate in our Catch a Star and Space Art contests will end on March 31.

On the other hand, we announce that on April 1, the EAAE will launch a new contest: Astronomy in all Seasons: Seize the day, Seize the year. You can find all the information about it on our website.

We hope, as until now, to continue counting on your participation in this new EAAE project.

In addition, we have received information about a new educational material that we present here, in         
case it could be of interest to promote the learning of Astronomy.

The title is: The Space Deck: Educational playing cards to get a complete overview of the field of astronomy and space science.
