The interactive talk “La Vida de las estrellas” (The Life of the Stars) explains, with an easy to understand language, the life cycle of the stars.
It was presented by Silvia Martínez Núñez and Pere Blay with great success three times during the International Year of Astronomy, at the three main cities of the Comunidad Valencia (Valencia , Alicante y Castellón),in collaboration with the association of people with intellectual disabilities Federación de Asociaciones a favor de las Personas con Discapacidad Intelectual de la Comunidad Valenciana (FEAPS-CV).
The interactive talk is divided in the following parts: (1) introduction to the science behind the life of the stars; (2) the attendants draw their impressions so far about the life of the stars; (3) observation of the Sun using a solar telescope; (4) the talk continues with the end of the stars; and (5) the public asks questions.
This project has been partially funded by the FECyT and has been supported by the Spanish national node of the International Year of Astronomy 2009.
