The LPIYA Group and the schools on La Palma will work together to bring astronomy to every student aged 14-16, offering a talk, a workshop activity and a visit to one of the telescopes, all by an astronomer working at the Roque de los Muchachos Observatory. This own project is called "Nuestros Alumnos y el Roque de los Muchachos", it starts in 2010 and it's a big joined effort of every user institution, involving more than 20 astronomers.

These are the members of the LPIYA Group:
