Along with this project the City of Sierra Pampilhosa developed an educational program leading to the appearance of two broad lines of action with an impact on the enthusiasm of the Council for Science:

- Will the "Scientists in the Sierra," spurred on by the Science Factory Live at the University of Aveiro and the program "Hands on Universe", coordinated by NUCLIO and install an antenna of 3 meters for remote use by schools throughout Europe.

Additionally will offer the foundations for the installation of a 9-meter Telescope for Solar Explosions traces of a draft supplement to the Space Weather monitoring by EFSA, a project coordinated by the Faculty of Science, University of Porto.
