Overview Activities for Young People
Space related activities in Nigeria are aimed towards engaging young people in Space science and other related fields of science and technology. Public outreach has been a strong means of spreading space activities in the country owing to activities by SGAC Nigeria, Astronomers-Without- Borders, ARCSSTEE, NASRDA and Universe-Awareness program. The activities from these organizations cover students and teachers in secondary and primary schools, tertiary institutions and other research agencies.
The headquarters of the National Space Research and Development Agency in Abuja is in the building and equipping its Space Museum and Planetarium which when completed would be an exciting way to motivate and educate people about space activities; this move is guaranteed to skyrocket the interest of the general public especially young people and give the necessary awareness to space activities in the country.
