This network has been established by students in a small city in the south of Iran. It was a desire to globalize all the activities and plans that they have been carrying out in Mehr observatory. Some of these activities contain a lot of social skills and different methods for students to do. The main aims of this network are Involving students in astronomical programs and projects, preparing a reliable structure for students around the world to meet each other using astronomy as a link, using the methods of sustainable development to teach students about the global environmental concerns and world peace, letting students make friends with each other without limitation and introducing their own culture.


I have been working in Astronomy education for 10 years and I spent a lot of time with student doing different astro-cultural activities in Iran.
I am also the associate member of IAU and I stablsished the Students' International Network for Astronomy (SINA) based on my experience in Iran since 2020.
