During this autumn month, various meetings and programs are also organized in the capital and throughout the country, clearly primarily for the purpose of popularizing science. This task is especially important for those institutions and organizations that deal with it primarily. Among them is the Society for the Diffusion of Scientific Knowledge (TIT), which raised its flag in 1861, i.e. one of the oldest civil organizations.
The TIT member organization in Nógrád County is also included among those remembered almost every year. This year, the celebration of the Hungarian flag was combined with the fifth anniversary of the Pegasus Center of Expertise. President Sandorini Palinkas brought this half-decade history back to life, and Gyula Nerges, a specialist at the Svabje Astronomical Observatory, gave a rather interesting lecture – Do satellites fall on our heads? Title – A presentation that primarily explores the problem of space pollution, with an interest of mostly high school audiences.
The event was honored by the presence of TIT National Office Director, Esther Beroth. What do the stars tell us about him? Teacher Leila Kirini, the narrator, spoke to kindergarten students. In addition to all this, a complex scientific literacy competition was organized for primary school students aged 13-15 years. During the afternoon, a detailed presentation of the Pegasus Experience Center was given.
