Yury Gagarin’s flight proved that a person can live and work in space. So a new profession appeared on Earth – an astronaut. On the eve of the holiday, a virtual exhibition “108 minutes in outer space” was held for students of the 2nd “A” class of the school № 63. It featured books not only about the heroes of the cosmos, but also the achievements of the industry as a whole, why Karaganda bears the proud name of “Space Harbor”, as well as art books about the conquerors of the universe. To consolidate the received material about the cosmos, planets, satellites, the flight of cosmonauts to space for children, an interactive quiz “Space Alphabet” and a riddle contest were held.
