"Ad Astra Academy" is an international project financed by NASA that presents Astronomy to students in underserved regions of the world, especially in Brazil. The students join leading scientists in experiments, field trips and lectures to learn more about Mars (2019), exoplanet worlds (2018) and other features the universe has to offer. The experience to work with real scientists during the two weeks program inspire some of them to even pursue a career in Astronomy, Physics, Engineering or similar fields. To learn more about the project, please visit their website.

    You can check out a bit about 2018 and 2019's project in the pictures and video below, which I produced myself for AstroTubers.

    In 2020, due to COVID-19, we were not able to continue with the project. So we started to update the Ad Astra social media weekly, and I am part of the people who are currently producing content to be featured in Ad Astra's Instagram and Twitter accounts. These are some of the contents I have produced so far, in Portuguese.
