Astronomy

Germany, Heidelberg

The Haus der Astronomie (HdA), literally "House of Astronomy", is a unique Centre for Astronomy Education and Outreach in Heidelberg, Germany. Its mission: To demonstrate to the public in general, and to young people in particular, the fascination of astronomy, and to further the communication between astronomers and their colleagues in other scientific disciplines. To this end, we organize events for the general public, and workshops for students and teacheres; we support research projects undertaken by high school students, participate in exhibitions, develop visualizations of astronomical phenomena and concepts, and support the media in their coverage of astronomical topics.Haus der Astronomie was founded in late 2008 by the Max Planck Society e.V. for the Advancement of Science (Germany's leading organization for basic research) and the Klaus Tschira Foundation gGmbH. The Klaus Tschira Foundation has constructed a custom-designed, galaxy-shaped building for the endeavour and, in addition, donated the building's basic equipment. The Max Planck Society is responsible for operating the Centre, a task it has delegated to the Max Planck Institute for Astronomy (MPIA) on whose grounds the new building stands. Additional partners are Heidelberg University and the City of Heidelberg; further support comes from the State of Baden-Wurttemberg’s ministries for research and for education.
