Astronomy is certainly the oldest science, and it was already practiced in the most distant times to guide our ancestors on their first migrations around the world. However, modernization and the facilities provided by technology have further and further alienated us from this fundamental science of humanity.
With the aim of strengthening our relationship with the universe, GEPEA was created, the Rubens de Azevedo Group for Studies and Research on Astronomy, which for three years has been providing astronomy to primary and secondary school students in Paraíba. . The work of this group has shown excellent results, which are reflected in the increased performance of students in the classroom and in the extracurricular activities that the group encourages.
