Event Description:  Thanks to the Club of Young Explorers KMO "Kolo Island" (KMO „Kolska Wyspa”) and the Culture Town Centre (MDK) there will appear the unique and unearthly opportunity to participate in outreach educational programme called the EarthKAM Mission. It is addressed to all who visited the MDK in Koło between the 5th and the 6th October 2016. For many years all over the world from the 4th – to 10th October has been celebrated the World Space Week. In this period, but also during other days of October are organized around the world thousands of themed events associated with the space. Every year, the event shows a different theme.
