Explain your idea in details:
An astronomy themed summer camp for kids in Palestine. Fada'a (space in Arabic) aims to change the way things are and put kids at the beginning of the journey of learning astronomy by teaching them the basics of astronomy. In my country the educational system doesn't give astronomy a fair part of the educational process which leaves kids totally uneducated in this marvelous sector. As an individual who is really passionate about astronomy and spent a good part of my life studying it, I want to enable kids to reach the minimal resources to do so.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Fada'a aims to provide equal opportunities in learning and in access to information, spread awareness about this marvelous type of science, and giving the Palestinian youth a chance in this sector.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
No fees will be taken from the kids, we will try to find funding resources from NGOs and organizations and potentially the American consulate.
I'm a 19 years old college student who has always found astronomy fascinating.
