AUI Astronomy Club Participates in Oujda’s Festival des Sciences

The AUI Astronomy Club presented expositions on optical illusions and the solar system at the Festival des Sciences in Oujda March 27-29.  Their efforts were directed both toward the general public, which enjoyed pictures and explanations of optical illusions, and five- to thirteen-year-olds, who participated in childrens’ workshops on the solar system. In the workshops, AUI students presented names of planets in Arabic and French, taught differences between planets and stars, and helped kids create their own solar system models using flour, salt, water and paint.
