A New Astronomical Chapter in Bacău

November 30, 1976, is a remarkable date for the city of Bacovia. The old house of Criste Cristoveanu has become over the years one of the most famous tourist attractions in the city of Bacău. The string of years has continued to surprise through considerable achievements, such as the one in 1978, when the operating space that had facilitated the construction of a unique tower in Moldova was obtained. One year later, the observatory was hosted in “The water tower” located on Trotuş Street, number 10. Then, in 1980, the activity of the observatory was encouraged through the purchasing of a planetarium and of two telescopes of 63/80 mm, from Germany.

Generalities of the Romanian culture

Romanian culture has its own ethos, generated within its geographical and historical evolution. Trends belonging to distinct areas and cultural traditions were simultaneously and successively combined in this context. The only Orthodox Christians among the Latin peoples and the only Latin people in the Eastern Orthodox space, the Romanians tenaciously kept their Roman roots, and they tried hard to harmonize them with the Orthodoxy in order to transform the ethnic “insularity” into a fruitful dialogue with other cultures.

Women and Girls in STEM

STEM education has become more and more important, and it is required for an interconnected global economy. The acronym refers to a range of academic disciplines, such as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, meant to bring a significant and beneficial contribution to the training offered by the education system in these fields. They provide workforce development, shaping the students’ vision according to the market requirements. We should mention the STEM initiative proposed by Georgette Yakman, the one who has introduced art among these disciplines, believing that there is a connexion between them, complying with the global socio-economic system.
