About us

Welcome to Meet our Neighbours!

We’re a team of astronomers dedicated to communication and outreach that promotes and provides inclusion activities for visually impaired children and their non-visually impaired peers through the use of planetary science hands-on low-cost activities.

This project produced a set 13 tactile images of the main objects of the Solar System (such as: the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Moon, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, a Dwarf planet, a Comet and an Asteroid). Through dedicated hands-on low-cost activities, this project activities and material can be used in schools, science centres and outreach associations, and is aimed for children from the ages of 6 to 12 years old.

This project is produced by NUCLIO and Europlanet and supported by Galileo Teaching Training Program and GalileoMobile and implemented internationally through an active network of science educators.
