During his speech, Przemysław Rudź presented the circumstances of the foundation and the goals and tasks of the agency, with particular emphasis on the National Space Program being prepared by POLSA. A significant part of the presentation was devoted to discussing the current activities of the Department of Education of the agencies concerning, among others, construction of school astronomical observatories, equipping school astronomical and astronaut laboratories, work on a report on the state of cosmic education in Poland or the project "Space philharmonic" implemented by the Baltic Philharmonic with the support of POLSA.
During the backstage conversations after the lecture, the teachers running astronomical circles of interest shared their experiences related to organizing events promoting space themes.
