This academic year the educational programme “Our students and the Roque de los Muchachos” has reached its tenth anniversary. The project, started within the framework of the International Year of Astronomy in 2009, is an activity designed for all the students in the 4th year of secondary education in La Palma, whose aim is to introduce the telescopes of the Roque de los Muchachos observatory (ORM) and to popularize the research which is carried out there among the school community on the Island.
