Khwarizmi Science Society proudly announces the distribution of Galileoscopes on October 22, 2013 at Ali Institute of Education, Lahore. These Galileoscopes were won in an International competition, a project organized in 2009 in view of International Year of Astronomy (IYA). In 2009, KSS organized a number of Falkiyati Melas or Astronomy Feasts in which thousands of children, parents and teachers had participated. Due to our extensive activities KSS was rewarded by 30 Galileoscopes that we have planned to distribute among the promising institutions all over the Pakistan. The distribution of free Galileoscopes will catalyze interest in cosmic sciences at the grassroots and institutional level.
To distribute these Galileoscopes we have sent invitation letters to almost 300 Schools all over Pakistan inviting an expression of interest through a tailor made given in the links below. Out of these almost 50 schools take interest from which we have selected a final list which is given below.
We have send the invitation letter to the selected schools.
